Take time to behold Him

Take time to behold Him,
  Speak oft with Thy Lord,
Abide in Him always,
  And feed on His Word.
Wait thou in His presence,
  Submissive and meek,
Forgetting in nothing
  His blessing to seek.
Take time to behold Him,
  The world rushes on;
Spend much time in secret
  With Jesus alone.
By looking to Jesus
  Like Him thou shalt be;
Thy friends, in thy conduct,
  His likeness shall see.
Take time to behold Him,
  Let Him be thy guide;
And run not before Him
  Whatever betide;
In joy or in sorrow
  Still follow thy Lord,
And, looking to Jesus,
  Still trust in His Word.
Take time to behold Him,
  Be calm in thy soul,
Each thought and each temper
  Beneath His control.
Thus led by His Spirit
  To fountains of love,
Thou then shalt be fitted
  His mercy to prove.

So encouraging... may we pay the price to deny our soul life & abide in the Lord, by spending much time in secret with Him.

The more we behold the Lord, the more we reflect His image in glory. Take time in His present the negative things will be whipped out, the positive things will be filled our inner being. Amen, hallelujah!

We can call on the Lord, pray and praise Him and much more we can behold Him each time.

Such a sweet hymn, take time to behold Him. I'm currently bored at work because there is nothing to do, I'm going crazy finding something to keep my occupied. Why not take time to behold Him? Lord remind me always regardless of whether I'm extremely busy, or have nothing to do, to always take time to behold You. I love You Lord!

I always thought it was "Take time to be holy." I like "behold Him" much better. To be holy is nothing to be measured in minutes or hours. As His redeemed we are Saints and we are to be holy, like He is holy, all the time. This is a matter of our existence, our very being! But to look at Him with full attention is different. We have to set time aside for this (devotion, or a quick look up during the time), because many things and responsibilities take our full attention, as they should.

Lord, help me look at You in the Spirit with all my heart and all my soul and all mind in order to love You more, to understand You more and to become more like You.
