Lyrics for "Draw Me Nearer"

 

Verse 1: Refrain after each verse:
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.
Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
To the cross where thou hast died.
Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
To thy precious bleeding side.
Verse 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.
 
Verse 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 to friend.
 
Verse 4:  
There are depths of love that I cannot know
Till I cross that narrow sea;
There are heights of joy that I may not reach
Till I rest in peace with thee.
