1 I am drawing nearer Jesus
Every day, and every hour,
There is not one fleeting moment
But I feel His spirit’s pow’r,
And I know He will be with me
Till my earthly race is run,
And will be the first to greet me
When the heav’nly life’s begun.

Refrain:
Drawing nearer, ever nearer,
On the Rock I’ll firmly stand,
Till I see the sunlight shining
In that fair and heav’nly land:
Drawing nearer, ever nearer,
On the Rock I’ll firmly stand,
Till I see the sunlight shining
In that fair and heav’nly land.

2 I am drawing nearer Jesus
Through the shadows and the storms,
While His loving arms enfold me
I am safe from every harm;
Though the waves may dash around me
And the hosts of sin be near,
Yet while Jesus walks beside me
There is naught that I shall fear. [Refrain]

3 I am drawing nearer Jesus
And His love shall light my way,
And my soul is pressing onward
Up to everlasting day;
At the margin of the river
I shall see His smiling face,
And my ransomed heart shall praise Him
For His mercy, love and grace. [Refrain]
