1 Only to know that the path I tread
Is the path marked out for me;
That the way, tho' thorny, rough, and steep,
Will lead me nearer to Thee!

Chorus:
Nearer to Thee! nearer to Thee!
Blessed Redeemer, to Thee!
Only to know that the path I tread
Is bringing me nearer to Thee!

2 Only to know when the day is passed,
As the evening shadows come,
That its trials and cares have proved, indeed,
A "day’s march nearer home!"

Chorus:
Nearer my home! nearer my home!
Nearer my beautiful home!
Only to know that each fast-fleeting day
Is bringing me nearer home!

3 Only to know that the cross I see,
Is the cross of Calvary,
On which the world’s Redeemer died,
To purchase life for me!

Chorus:
Purchas'd for me! purchas'd for me!
Life Thou hast purchas'd for me!
Only to know that Thy death on the cross
Brings light and life to me!

4 Only to know His peace within--
My will to His resigned;
Oh, fill me with Thy fullness, Lord,
And make me wholly Thine!

Chorus:
Wholly Thine! wholly Thine!
Now and forever Thine!
Fill me with love and peace divine,
And make me wholly Thine!
