1 I hear my Savior saying,
“Come closer, My child, to Me”;
I hear Him sweetly saying,
“I will draw near to thee.”

Refrain:
O Lord, I’m so glad Thou dost love me so,
To deign to walk with me here below;
Thy sweet, tender love has won my heart,
And now we shall never, never, never part.

2 I hear my Savior saying,
“Come, lean upon My breast”;
I hear Him sweetly saying,
“And I will give thee rest.” [Refrain]

3 I hear my Savior saying,
“Cease from thy stuggle and care”;
I hear Him sweetly saying,
“Leave all with Me in prayer.” [Refrain]

4 I hear my Savior saying,
“I’ll never leave thee now,
If thou wilt bear My image
Upon thy heart and brow.” [Refrain]
