Representative Text

1 My heart is closer drawn to Jesus, day by day,
‘Tis sweet to walk and talk with Him along life’s way;
My one desire to live with Him in full accord,
Each day a little closer to my Lord.

Refrain:
Closer, closer,
While trusting in His precious word;
Closer, closer,
Each day a little closer to my Lord.

2 When trials sore oppress me, and the way grows dim,
‘Tis good to know that I am in the way with Him;
My faith in Him has never failed of full reward,
I want to draw yet closer to my Lord. [Refrain]

3 Whatever dangers threaten me, I will not fear,
For naught of ill can harm me if my Lord is near;
I gird me for the conflict, take the spirit’s sword,
And draw a little closer to my Lord. [Refrain]
