Representative Text

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.
He has been your guide and helper,
He has been a faithful Friend,
And you never can repay Him,
Tho’ you serve Him to the end.

Chorus:
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. [Chorus]

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. [Chorus]
