Just a little nearer

Representative Text

1 Heav'nly Father, I would be
Just a little nearer;
I would all thy glory see
Just a little clearer.

Nearer, nearer would I be,
Just a little nearer;
Draw me nearer, Lord, to thee,
Just a little nearer.

2 Lest I wander, Lord, from thee,
Just a little nearer
May thy Spirit ever be
Just a little nearer. [Chorus]

3 Let thy love encompass me,
Just a little nearer;
Height and depth of love must be
Just a little nearer. [Chorus]
