581. Draw Us to Thee

1 Draw us to Thee in mind and heart,
On heav'nly things attending;
In spirit hence let us depart,
To Thee, O Lord, ascending.

2 Draw us to Thee, O Christ, and guide
Our erring feet to heaven;
If Thou, O Lord, with us abide,
Light to our path is given.

3 Draw us to Thee, O Thou whose love
The angels praise adoring;
Receive our souls in Thee above,
Thy name in death imploring.

4 Draw us to Thee, grant us to rise
To yon bodes of glory;
On Thee to rest our joyful eyes,
And fall in praise before Thee.
