170. Draw Us to Thee

1 Draw us to thee,
For then shall we
Walk in thy steps forever
And hasten on
Where thou art gone
To be with thee, dear Savior.

2 Draw us to thee,
Lord, lovingly;
Let us depart with gladness
That we may be
Forever free
From sorrow, grief, and sadness.

3 Draw us to thee;
Oh, grant that we
May walk the road to heaven!
Direct our way
Lest we should stray
And from thy paths be driven.

4 Draw us to thee
That also we
Thy heav'nly bliss inherit
And ever dwell
Where sin and hell
No more can vex our spirit.

5 Draw us to thee
Into thy kingdom take us.
Let us fore'er
Thy glory share;
Thy saints and joint heirs make us.
