Draw Me Nearer

Full Text

1 I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice,
And it told Thy love to me.
But I long to rise in the arms of faith.
And be closer drawn to Thee.

Chorus:
Draw me nearer,(nearer, nearer,)nearer, blessed Lord,
To the cross where Thou hast died.
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
To Thy precious bleeding side.

2 Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,
By the pow'r of grace divine.
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,
And my will be lost in Thine/ [Chorus]

3 O the pure delight of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend;
When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God,
I commune as friend with friend! [Chorus]

4 There are depths of love that I cannot know
Till I cross the narrow sea;
There are heights of joy that I may not reach
Till I rest in peace with Thee. [Chorus]
