11060. Live Nearer To Jesus

1 Live nearer to Jesus,
Trusting ever in Him;
He waiteth to free us
From the bondage of sin.
Stand up for the Savior,
Stand up ever for Him.
In duty ne’er waver,
He is Savior and king.

Refrain:
In His love we’re stronger,
In His strength we conquer;
Trust in self no longer,
Trust Thy Savior and king.

2 Live nearer to Jesus,
Ever trust in His power;
Thro’ life He will lead us,
Cheering every dark hour.
Stray not from His keeping,
In Him always abide;
Joys constantly reaping,
Clinging close to His side. [Refrain]

3 Live nearer to Jesus,
And His Spirit receive;
He’ll never deceive us—
O, His promise believe.
Sweet is the communion,
Yes, more precious than gold;
In heavenly union
We His beauty behold. [Refrain]
