O JESUS I HAVE PROMISED
O Jesus, I have promised to serve thee to the end:
Be thou ever 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 Lord I have promised to serve Thee
To follow Thee till the end
O let me see thy footprints, and in them plant mine own;
My hope to follow duly is in thy strength alone.
O Jesus, thou hast promised to all who follow thee,
that where thou art in glory there shall thy servant be;
O let me hear thee speaking in accents clear and still,
Above the storms of passion, the murmurs of self-will;
O guide me, call me, draw me, uphold me to the end;
And then in heaven receive me, my Saviour and my Friend.
