1 Nearer, Jesus, to Thee!
Thou hast suffered for me,
For my sins Thou didst die to atone;
Mine the sin and the blame,
Thine the cross and the shame;
What compassion and love hast Thou shown!

Refrain:
Nearer, nearer to Thee,
O to be nearer to Thee!
Twill be glory to me
When Thy face I shall see,
And forever be nearer to Thee.

2 Nearer, Jesus, to Thee!
Since my soul was made free,
All my longings in Thee have an end;
Never, Lord, from my heart
For a moment depart;
Ever reign there my King and my Friend. [Refrain]

3 Nearer, Jesus, to Thee!
Thou art dearer to me
Than when first on Thy name I believed;
Every day, more and more,
Do I love and adore
For new mercies and blessings received. [Refrain]
