    Verse 1
    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.

    Chorus
    Draw me nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
    To the cross where Thou hast died;
    Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
    To Thy precious, bleeding side.

    Verse 2
    Consecrate me now to Thy service Lord,
    By the power of grace divine;
    Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,
    And my will be lost in Thine.

    Chorus
    Draw me nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
    To the cross where Thou hast died.
    Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer blessed Lord.
    To Thy precious bleeding side.

    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 with friend.

    Chorus
    Draw me nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
    To the cross where Thou hast died.
    Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer blessed Lord.
    To Thy precious bleeding side.

    Verse 4
    There are depths of love that I cannot know
    Till I cross the narrow sea;
    There are heights of joy that I may not reach
    Till I rest in peace with Thee.

    Chorus
    Draw me nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
    To the cross where Thou hast died.
    Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer blessed Lord.
    To Thy precious bleeding side.
