Representative Text

1 O Saviour, 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.

Refrain:
Saviour, I have promised,
Saviour, I have promised,
Saviour, I have promised;
O keep me to the end.

2 O Saviour, Thou hast promised
To all who follow Thee
That where Thou art in glory
Thy servant there shall be.
And Saviour, I have promised
To serve Thee to the end;
O give me grace to follow,
My Master and my Friend. [Refrain]

3 O let me see Thy footprints,
And in them plant mine own;
My hope to follow duly
Is in Thy strength alone.
O guide me, call me, draw me,
Uphold me to the end;
And then in Heav’n receive me,
My Saviour and my Friend. [Refrain]
