Dearer As the Days Go By

Representative Text

1 He never disappoints, the Saviour,
He gave Himself for man to die;
They love Him, more and more who know Him,
He is dearer as the days go by.

He is dearer as the days go by,
Dearer as the days go by;
They who walk with Him life's way,
Can of the Saviour say,
He is dearer as the days go by.

2 We find Him every true, the Saviour,
As we His word of promise try,
In time of need He never fails us,
He is dearer as the days go by. [Chorus]

3 Come, all you weary, heavy-laden,
And to the Saviour's cross draw nigh;
He'll save you and stay near to aid you,
He is dearer as the days go by. [Chorus]
