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.
