1 Keep your covenant with Jesus,
‘Tis the least that you can do;
For He died for your salvation,
And He always has been true.
And you never can repay Him,
Tho’ you serve Him to the end.

Refrain:
Keep your covenant with Jesus,
To your pledge be ever true,
For He gave Himself your ransom;
Yes, He died, He died for you.

2 Tho’ we give our dearest treasure,
‘Tis a trifle we bestow;
Tho’ we mete with largest measure,
‘Tis but little we can show.
But He sees the good intention,
And the loyal, loving will,
And by giving Him our utmost,
We may each His charge fulfill. [Refrain]

3 What are all our cares and burdens?
They are shadows dimly cast;
They will fade and quickly vanish,
If we hold our promise fast.
We can smile at all our losses,
We can welcome toil and pain;
If we keep our pledge with Jesus,
None of these will be in vain. [Refrain]
