Verse 1
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.  
Verse 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.  
Verse 3
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. 
Verse 4
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.
