Hymnal: Sunday School Book #73 (1903) Topics: Baptism and Confirmation Confirmation Lyrics: 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 we 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 dear 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 has 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; Ah, give me grace to follow, My Master and my Friend! 5 Oh, let me see Thy foot-marks, And in them have my own! My hope to follow duly Is in Thy strength alone. Oh, guide me, call me, draw me, Uphold me to the end! At last in heaven receive me, My Saviour and my Friend!
