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.

Was listening to Daily Service this morning and this hymn was sung. I pray this for my two estranged daughters. Amen.

Just lost my little sister to an addiction. This hymn reminds me how much I have always believed in God and pray he is keeping her safe in heaven.

I woke up this morning with this song in spirit. I looked up on this site for words of the whole song and sang it. I knew that God, the Holy Spirit was speaking to me. I am making a new commitment today, to follow Him. He is also assuring me His best. Is He not a good God and Father? Love lots my God.

I woke up this morning with this hymn in my spirit. I made a commitment to the Lord which can be pretty hard to keep. I guess this hymn is a gentle reminder that I am not alone as Jesus will be there for me.
