1 Nearer my Saviour, still nearer to Thee,
This earth’s fleeting comforts, are nothing to me;
Perishing daily, like shadows they flee,
I’m seeking a refuge, blest Saviour in Thee.

Refrain:
Seeking a refuge, seeking a refuge,
I’m seeking a refuge, blest Saviour in Thee,
Seeking a refuge, seeking a refuge,
I’m seeking a refuge, blest Saviour in Thee.

2 Though I have wandered again and again,
Yet ever I hear this inviting refrain;
Let nothing keep thee away from my love,
It turns my affections to heaven above. [Refrain]

3 Dark are the shadows of sorrow and woe,
But Jesus will light up the pathway I know;
Beautiful mansions awaiting on high,
With this blest assurance, my hope cannot die. [Refrain]

4 When the dark valley I’m called to pass thro’,
A light from those mansions will open to view;
Jesus my Saviour, the bright Morning Star,
Will lead to the city whose gates are ajar. [Refrain]
