Precious redeemer my brother and friend

Representative Text

1 Precious Redeemer, my brother and friend,
Dearer than all is my Saviour;
On me His grace and His blessings descend,
I’m longing, dear Saviour, for Thee.

Refrain:
Longing, dear Saviour, I’m longing for Thee!
Hasten, glad moment, when Jesus I’ll see;
Longing to be Saviour, with Thee,
Longing, I’m longing for Jesus.

2 Earth holds no charm that can lure me away,
Kept by the love of my Saviour;
Sweeter He grows ev’ry step of the way,
I’m longing, dear Saviour, for Thee. [Refrain]

3 Deeper than ocean and boundless as space,
Such is the love of my Saviour;
Soul-thrilling rapture to look in His face,
I’m longing, dear Saviour, for Thee. [Refrain]

4 Friends here may fail me, but Jesus is true;
O what a wonderful Saviour;
His love sufficient will carry me thro’,
I’m longing, dear Saviour, for Thee. [Refrain]
