Representative Text

1 O Blessed Redeemer, I know I am Thine,
The voice of Thy spirit bears witness with mine,
Yet more to Thy image conformed would I be,
O Saviour, I pray Thee, draw nearer to me.

Refrain:
Nearer to me, nearer to me,
O Saviour, I pray Thee, draw nearer to me.

2 Thy grace ever needed each moment impart,
Subdue every impulse of wrong in my heart,
How oft, though I would not, I wander from Thee,
O Saviour, I pray Thee, draw nearer to me. [Refrain]

3 I want to be humble and learn at Thy feet,
My trials and crosses with patience to meet,
I ask for a perfect submission to Thee,
O Saviour, I pray Thee, draw nearer to me. [Refrain]

4 The sorrow of others, O help me to share,
To seek out the lowly and make them my care,
To gather the lost ones and bring them to me,
O Saviour, I pray Thee, draw nearer to me. [Refrain]
