1 Closer, still closer, my Savior, to thee,
Closer to Jesus my heart longs to be;
Round me his arm, on his bosom my head,
Near the dear side which on Calvary bled.

Refrain:
Closer, closer, closer to thee,
Closer, still closer, my Savior, to thee.

2 Closer by day, tho’ my sky be all bright,
Closer, still closer, when falleth the night;
Earth has no spot where without him I’m safe,
Time has no moment I need not his grace. [Refrain]

3 When to the Jordan of death I descend,
Danger I’ll fear not if Christ be my friend;
Breasting the billows, my death-song shall be,
Closer, still closer, my Savior, to thee. [Refrain]
