Blessèd Mas­ter, I have pro­mised,
Hear my so­lemn vow;
Take this pledge of mine and seal it
Here and now.

Strength of mine is on­ly weak­ness,
Thine is strength in­deed;
Strengthen me in full­est mea­sure
As I need.

Let no world­ly cares nor plea­sures
Call my heart away;
Save me, Lord, and keep me faith­ful
Day by day.
