O Jesus, I have promised


    • O Jesus, I have promised 
    • To serve Thee to the end; 
    • Be Thou forever near me, 
    • My Master and my Friend; 
    • I shall not fear the battle 
    • If Thou art by my side, 
    • Nor wander from the pathway 
    • If Thou wilt be my Guide. 

    • O let me feel Thee near me; 
    • The world is ever near; 
    • I see the sights that dazzle, 
    • The tempting sounds I hear; 
    • My foes are ever near me, 
    • Around me and within; 
    • But Jesus, draw Thou nearer, 
    • And shield my soul from sin. 

    • O let me hear Thee speaking 
    • In accents clear and still, 
    • Above the storms of passion, 
    • The murmurs of self-will; 
    • O speak to reassure me, 
    • To hasten, or control; 
    • O speak, and make me listen, 
    • Thou Guardian of my soul. 

    • O Jesus, Thou hast promised 
    • To all who follow Thee 
    • That where Thou art in glory 
    • There shall Thy servants be; 
    • And, Jesus, I have promised 
    • To serve Thee to the end; 
    • O give me grace to follow 
    • My Master and my Friend. 

    • O let me see Thy footmarks, 
    • And in them plant mine own; 
    • My hope to follow duly 
    • Is in Thy strength alone. 
    • O guide me, call me, draw me, 
    • Uphold me to the end; 
    • And then in heaven receive me, 
    • My Saviour and my Friend.
