O Jesus, I have promised

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

I just woke up this day, Friday, 26th March 2021, with this song, singing it even from my spirit while fast asleep.

It has been tough, with so many challenges, in my quest to do God's will. But I depend solely on God. This song really is like an anchor for me; and ministered to my soul, reminding me of my early days serving our Lord Jesus Christ. Come what may, I will follow my Savior till the end. My hope to follow him duly is in his strength alone.

Thanks for this platform and the opportunity to comment. I couldn't have easily located this song this day, if you did not publish it here. Keep up the good work.

God bless us all!

It's the Spirit

Talking to the spirit

And Deep

Calling unto deep....

It's a song that speaks about

The warmth

Of God's Love...

The serenity

Of His Presence...

And the eternity

Of our Call/Calling.
