1. O to abide in Jesus,
O to be His alone;
Close to the fount of blessing,
Close to my Savior’s throne.
O for an earnest longing,
Into His life to grow;
O for a deeper yearning,
More of its joy to know.

2. O to abide in Jesus,
Never to faint nor fall;
Clinging to Him who loves me,
Trusting my all in all.
O for a heart to praise Him,
O for a tongue to sing
Glory to Him who saves me,
Jesus my Lord and King.

3. O to be more like Jesus,
Earnest whene’er I pray;
Into His perfect likeness
Growing from day to day,
O for a faith to bear me,
Ever with tireless wing,
Home where the blest are waiting,
Home where the angels sing.
