Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Closer, dear Lord, to thee

Full Text

1 Closer, dear Lord, to thee,
Closer to thee;
In sweet communion drawn,
Oh, let it be;
Earth's joys forgotten quite,
Whilst dwelling in the light;
Closer, dear Lord, to thee,
Closer to thee.

Chorus:
Closer, closer, closer, day by day,
In sweet communion drawn,
Closer, Lord, to thee.

2 Oh, let no cloud of sin
'Twixt me and thee,
Aught of thy brightness dim,
But let me be
Now on the mount's blest height,
Gazing on glory bright,
Till faith is lost in sight,
Closer to thee. [Chorus]

3 So shall my walk below,
Glorify thee,
Till that glad moment come
When I shall see,
Not through a darkening glass,
Glimpses of glory pass,
But view thee face to face,
Closer to thee. [Chorus]
