1 Near to Jesus, near to Jesus,
Trusting Him without a fear;
When the storm clouds darkly gather,
He will make the pathway clear.
Near to Jesus, near to Jesus,
This my pray’r shall ever be;
Tho’ the path be steep or rugged,
Jesus, keep us near to Thee!
2 Near to Jesus, near to Jesus,
Tho’ in sorrow and in pain;
Losing earthly ease and presence,
Life eternal we shall gain. [Refrain]
3 Near to Jesus, near to Jesus,
Till life’s toil and cares are o’er,
Then in heav’n, ‘mid joys immortal,
Near to Jesus—evermore. [Refrain]Source: Awakening Songs for the Church, Sunday School and Evangelistic Services #71
