1 Oh, to be "Kept for Jesus!"
Kept, by the power of God;
Kept, from the world unspotted,
Treading where Jesus trod.
Oh, to be "Kept for Jesus!"
Lord at Thy feet I fall;
I would be "nothing, nothing, nothing;"
Thou shall be "all in all."
2 Oh, to be "Kept for Jesus!"
Serving as He shall choose;
"Kept" for the Master's pleasure;
"Kept" for the Master's use. [Chorus]
3 Oh, to be "Kept for Jesus!"
Kept from the world apart;
Lowly in mind and spirit,
Gentle and pure in heart. [Chorus]
4 Oh, to be "Kept for Jesus!"
Oh, to be all His own!
Kept, to be His forever,
Kept to be His alone! [Chorus]
