O Jesus, I have promised

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
Oh, 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
Oh, let me hear Thee speaking,
  In accents clear and still,
Above the storms of passion,
  The murmurs of self-will;
Oh, speak to reassure me,
  To hasten, or control;
Oh, speak, and make me listen,
  Thou Guardian of my soul.
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;
Oh, give me grace to follow,
  My Master and my Friend.
5
Oh, let me see Thy footmarks,
  And in them plant mine own;
My hope to follow duly
  Is in Thy strength alone.
Oh, guide me, call me, draw me,
  Uphold me to the end;
And then to rest receive me,
  My Savior and my Friend.

A great hymn of commitment to the service of God in totality.

A Vow to remain faithful unto God in whatever situation we are God is always seen as the ultimate who have the final say.

All to him I surrender all.

This beautiful hymn will always remind me of a great lady who was a lover of Jesus. We sang this today at her Memorial Service at her request:

Mrs Marie Morgan, 89 yrs old. 14th January, 2021. Jesus promised, you promised Him Marie. You are with Him forever. All praise to our Faithful Lord. Rest in His Presence, healed and happy..

A beautiful hymn that moves me to tears at the start of this New Year. I love the quality of recordings on this site. I love reading the comments of brothers and sisters around the world. We are all one in Christ Jesus. I see many comments from Nigeria. This country is largely unknown to me but I feel drawn to it by the knowledge that there are many believers there. There were many evils of the colonial period but how beautiful are the feet of those who brought the Gospel to Nigeria.
