Keep thyself pure! Christ's soldier, hear,
through life's loud strife the call rings clear.
Thy Captain speaks: his words obey;
so shall thy strength be as thy day.
Keep thyself pure! When lusts assail,
when flesh is strong and spirit frail,
fight on--a fadeless crown thy meed--
thy body as thy captive lead.
Keep thyself pure! Thrice blessed he
whose heart from taint of sin is free.
His feet shall stand where saints have trod;
he with rapt eyes shall see his God.
Keep thyself pure! For he who died,
himself for thy sake sanctified.
Then hear him speaking from the skies,
and victor o'er temptation rise.
O Holy Spirit, keep us pure,
grant us thy strength when sins allure;
our bodies are thy temple, O Lord;
be thou in thought and act adored.
