141. I’ve Signed the Pledge

1 I’ve signed the pledge,
I’ve signed the pledge,
And I shall never taste
The cup of death, no matter where,
Or when, or by what hand so fair,
Before me it is placed.

2 I’ve signed the pledge,
I’ve signed the pledge,
And would I ever dare
To offer poison to a friend,
And from my hand his soul to send
To shame and dark despair.

3 I’ve signed the pledge,
I’ve signed the pledge,
I’ve promised God on high,
With angels listening to my vow,
And, by His grace—He hears me now—
I’ll keep it till I die.
