1 Jesus, Saviour, keep me near Thee,
I am weak and full of sin;
But with Thee I cannot falter,
Make and keep me pure within.

Refrain:
Jesus, Saviour, keep me ever
Near Thy tender bleeding side,
Guard and guide me gentle Jesus,
Let me in Thy love abide,
Let me in Thy love abide.

2 Jesus, Saviour, keep me near Thee,
Let me love and cling to Thee,
May I walk by faith desiring
Naught but Thou shouldst walk with me. [Refrain]

3 Jesus, Saviour, keep me near Thee,
Let me never form Thee stray,
May I turn some weary wand’rer
From the night to perfect day. [Refrain]

4 May I do what Thou wouldst have me,
May I ever sing Thy grace,
That has saved me from destruction,
That in Heav’n I’ll have a place. [Refrain]
