Representative Text

1 Nearer to Jesus I am drawing ev’ry day,
Closer clinging to His side I press on my way;
Sweeter falls the music of His voice upon mine ear,
Hoping, trusting, waiting, I have nothing to fear.

Nearer, nearer,
Nearer blessed Jesus,
Nearer draw me to Thee, closer yet I would be;
Whisper sweetest words of comfort, hold and strengthen me;
Help me Savior, help me to live nearer to Thee.

2 Nearer to Jesus ev’ry morning, noon and night,
Living in His counsel, and sustained by His might,
All the way my soul rejoices in His precious love,
And I’ll trust Him till at last I’m crown’d His above. [Refrain]

3 Nearer to Jesus I am longing yet to be,
Nearer, nearer, till His blessed face I can see;
Nearer, till around the throne, with all the ransom’d throng,
I shall see Him face to face, and praise Him in song. [Refrain]
