Jesus I bless thee, Savior divine

Representative Text

1 Jesus I bless Thee, Saviour Divine,
Thou hast redeemed me, O Lord I am Thine,
Once I was lonely, now I am blest,
Under Thy shadow, peaceful I rest.

Chorus:
Nearer each moment, nearer to Thee,
Jesus my Saviour, still I would be,
Nearer each moment, nearer to Thee,
Jesus my Saviour still I would be.

2 I have no tribute, nothing to bring,
Yet Thou hast made me, the child of a King,
Sealed by adoption, ransomed by love,
Heir to a mansion waiting above. [Chorus]

3 This my rejoicing, this my delight,
Crowned with Thy glory, transcendently bright,
Soon with the millions, chanting Thy praise,
I shall adore Thee, Ancient of days. [Chorus]
