Representative Text

1 Nearer, still nearer, lowly I bend,
Did ever sinner have such a Friend?
This Friend is Jesus, bless His dear name,
Yesterday, always, forever the same.

Refrain:
Nearer, still nearer,
Nearer, still nearer,
Draw me, my Saviour,
Still nearer to Thee.

2 Nearer, still nearer, sun of my soul,
O the sweet rapture, I am made whole,
Cleansed by the blood and free from all sin,
Faithful till death, I a crown then shall win. [Refrain]

3 Higher and higher, on eagle wing,
Love draws me closer to Christ, my King,
Precious while living thro’ grief and pain,
Thrice precious, dying, His love shall sustain. [Refrain]
