Representative Text

1 O Jesus my Lord and my Savior,
A rock and a refuge to me;
I long to be drawn by thy favor,
Still closer and closer to thee.

Chorus:
Closer to thee, closer to thee,
Closer my Lord and my Savior,
Closer to thee, closer to thee,
Draw me still closer to thee.

2 Let peace from thy presence possess me,
A peace that abiding shall be;
And when my temptations distress me,
O draw me still closer to thee. [Chorus]

3 When close by thy side I am keeping,
My pathway is mark'd out by thee;
And rich are the fields for my reaping,
While closer and closer to thee. [Chorus]

4 And when my life's journey is ending,
The waves of the river I see;
Let angels from glory descending,
My spirit bear closer to thee. [Chorus]
