1. Closer to Thee, near to Thy side,
Closer, dear Lord, I would abide;
Hold me in Thy embrace,
’Neath ev’ry smile of grace;
Grant me, Thy child, a place
Closer to Thee.

2. Closer to Thee, near to Thy breast,
Closer to Thee, Lord, let me rest;
Guide me when I would stray,
Keep me from sin each day,
Draw me, dear Lord, I pray,
Closer to Thee.

3. Closer to Thee, happy and free,
Grant me, O Lord, ever to be;
Hear me in ev’ry cry,
Stand near when I must die;
Then take me home on high,
Closer to Thee.
