455. I Am Yours, O Lord

1 I am your, O Lord, I have heard your voice,
And it told your love to me;
But I long to rise in the arms of faith,
drawn to you eternally.

Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed lord,
to the cross where you have died;
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
To your precious, bleeding side.

2 O the pure delight of a single hour
that before your throne I spend,
When I kneel in prayer, and with you, my God,
I commune as friend with friend! [Refrain]

3 Consecrate me now to your holy work,
by the power of grace divine;
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope;
Let your will be done, not mine. [Refrain]

4 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 eternally. [Refrain]
