    Verse 1
    Let me come closer to Thee, Jesus,
    Oh , closer day by day!
    Let me lean harder on Thee, Jesus
    Yea, harder all the way.

    Verse 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!

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

    Verse 4
    In all my heart and will, O Jesus,
    Be altogether King!
    Make me a loyal subject, Jesus,
    To thee in everything.

    Verse 5
    Thirsting and hungering for Thee, Jesus
    With blessed hunger here,
    Longing for home on Zion's mountain
    No thirst, no hunger there.
