Full Text

1 Let me come closer to Thee, Jesus,
Oh, closer day by day;
Let me lean harder on Thee, Jesus,
Yes, harder all the way.

2 Let me show forth Thy beauty, Jesus,
Like sunshine on the hills!
Oh, let my lips pour forth Thy sweetness
In joyous, sparkling rills!

3 Yes, like a fountain, precious Jesus,
Make me and let me be;
Keep me and use me daily, Jesus,
For Thee, for only Thee.

4 In all my heart and will, O Jesus,
Be altogether King!
Make me a loyal subject, Jesus,
To Thee in every thing.

5 Thirsting and hung'ring for Thee, Jesus,
With blessed hunger here,
Looking for home on Zion's mountain,
No thirst, no hunger there.

Amen.
