Hymn 209

Play music
1. Lord 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. 0 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. 0let me hear thee speaking
In accents clear and still,
Above the storms of passion,
The murmurs of self-will;
0 speak to reassure me,
To hasten or control;
0speak and make me listen,
Thou Guardian of my soul.
4. Lord Jesus, thou hast promised,
To all who follow thee,
That they shall share thy glory
Through all eternity;
And, Jesus, I have promised
To serve thee to the end;
And by thy grace to follow
My Master and my Friend.
