1 Draw me, O Lord, with the cords of thy love,
Draw me still closer to thee;
What is the world to the mansion above
Thou art preparing for me?

Refrain:
There is my home, my beautiful home,
Over the wave-girded sea;
There in thy likeness my soul shall awake,
Happy, dear Saviour, in thee.

2 Draw me, O Lord, to the arms of thy rest,
Open to welcome me there;
Soon shall I fly like a bird to its nest,
Ever thy glory to share. [Refrain]

3 Draw me, O Lord, where the friends of the past
Roam on that bright, sunny plain;
O that my spirit may join them at last,
Never to lose them again. [Refrain]

4 Draw me, O Lord, where the faithful and tried
Labor and sorrow no more;
Draw me away where I hope to abide,
Anchored and safe on the shore. [Refrain]
