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
C D7 G
And be closer drawn to Thee.

Draw me nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
To the cross where Thou hast died;
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
G D7 G
To Thy precious, bleeding side.
Consecrate me now to Thy service Lord,
By the power of grace divine;
Let my soul look up with steadfast hope,
And my will be lost in Thine.
O the pure delight of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend;
When I kneel in prayer and with Thee O God,
I commune as friend with friend.
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.
