654. O Jesus, I Have Promised

1 O Jesus, I have promised
to serve thee to the end;
be thou for 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.

2 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.

3 O Jesus, thou hast promised
to all who follow thee
that where thou art in glory
there shall thy servant be;
And, Jesus, I have promised
to serve thee to the end;
O give me grace to follow,
My Master and my Friend.
