Oh, to be Kept for Jesus!
Kept, by the power of God;
Kept from the world unspotted,
Treading where Jesus trod.

Refrain

Oh, to be Kept for Jesus!
Lord, at Thy feet I fall;
I would be nothing, nothing, nothing;
Thou shall be all in all.

Oh, to be Kept for Jesus!
Serving as He shall choose;
Kept for the Master’s pleasure;
Kept; for the Master’s use.

Refrain

Oh, to be Kept for Jesus!
Kept from the world apart;
Lowly in mind and spirit,
Gentle and pure in heart.

Refrain

Oh, to be Kept for Jesus!
Oh, to be all His own;
Kept, to be His forever,
Kept, to be His alone!

Refrain
