Representative Text

1 Nearer, Lord, our souls would be,
Closer drawn by faith to Thee;
Faith that from eternal springs
Life and health and comfort brings.

Grant our prayers, direct our way,
Draw us upward day by day
To Thyself, that we may be
One in heart and one in Thee.

2 Nearer, Lord, our souls would be,
Still by faith beholding Thee,
Where Thou dwellest, veiled in light,
Circled round with glory bright. [Refrain]

3 Nearer, Lord, our souls would be,
More and more conformed to Thee;
Nearer, Lord, the holy place
Where the saints behold Thy face. [Refrain]

4 O to feel! to know, to see!
Heavenly rest, our home, and Thee,
Where our harps attuned to praise
Nobler songs of joy shall raise. [Refrain]
