Representative Text

1 Jesus, my Lord, Thy voice I hear
Bidding me now by faith draw near,
Near to the fount so pure within,
Cleansing my soul from every sin.

Refrain:
Jesus, my Lord, I come to Thee;
Open the gate of prayer for me!
I come to Thee, I come to Thee,
Open the gate of prayer for me.

2 Jesus, my trust, this heart is Thine,
Kept by the pow’r of grace divine;
Help me to rise my cares above,
Filled with Thy deep, unbounded love. [Refrain]

3 Jesus, my life, O guide y way
Onward from earth to endless day.
Soon may I reach the heav‘nly shore,
There to abide forevermore. [Refrain]
