Serving God is a holy task,
Consuming fire around His throne.
No selfish concern could I ask
to beg off His service for my own.
When priests in the wilderness were called
holy oil on their heads and robes
showed Whom they served enthralled
in commitment pure of soul.
And consecrated now are those
who follow Christ into their days
with gospel orders pure and bold
anointed by the Spirit in all His ways
