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. 

2.	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. 

3.	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. 

4.	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!
