Representative Text

1 Cling closer to Jesus,
Ye weary ones, cling,
And rest ‘neath the shadow
Of his mighty wing;
Nor from that blest shelter
Go ever astray:
Cling closer to Jesus,
Cling closer to-day!

Refrain:
Oh, cling to the Saviour,
Your refuge and stay!
Cling closer to Jesus,
Still closer to-day!

2 Cling closer to Jesus,
Ye penitents, cling,
His mercy shall sweeten
The bitterest sting;
His patience, his kindness
Come feel while you may;
Cling closer to Jesus,
Cling closer to-day! [Refrain]

3 Cling closer to Jesus,
Come, Christian, and cling;
Unto him your troubles
And suffering bring;
He’ll bear every burden,
And lighten your way;
Cling closer to Jesus,
Cling closer to-day! [Refrain]
