1 Close by the side of Jesus,
Filled with his boundless love,
Cheered by the streams descending
pure from his throne above.
Close by the side of Jesus,
Drawn by his power divine;
Oh, how my heart rejoices!
Oh, what a song is mine!
2 Close by the side of Jesus,
Led by his hand so dear,
Heir to a full salvation,—
What has my soul to fear? [Refrain]
3 Close by the side of Jesus,
Child of his grace so free;
Learning, and still repeating,
All he has done for me. [Refrain]
4 Close by the side of Jesus,
Light is the cross I bear;
He is a firm foundation;
Safe will I rest me there. [Refrain]Source: Showers of Blessing #96
