1 Precious Saviour, dearest Friend,
While we bend the knee,
Come and give our longing hearts
Deeper love to thee.

Saviour, loving Redeemer,
Saviour, precious to me,
Grant me, I pray thee,
More of thy Spirit,
Drawing me closer,
Closer to thee.

2 Come and consecrate us now,
Seal us ever thine;
May we to thy holy will
Every pow’r resign. [Refrain]

3 Trusting as a little child
Help us, Lord, to be,
While we ask in simple faith
Deeper love to thee. [Refrain]

4 Deeper love, yes, deeper love,
This our constant plea;
Deeper love, yes, deeper love,
Till we’re lost in thee. [Refrain]

Author: W. H. Doane

Doane, W. H. (William Howard), born in Preston, Connecticut, 1831, and educated for the musical profession by eminent American and German masters. He has had for years the superintendence of a large Baptist Sunday School in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he resides. Although not a hymnwriter, the wonderful success which has attended his musical setting of numerous American hymns, and the number of his musical editions of hymnbooks for Sunday Schools and evangelistic purposes, bring him within the sphere of hymnological literature. Amongst his collections we have:— (1) Silver Spray, 1868; (2) Pure Gold, 1877; (3) Royal Diadem, 1873; (4) Welcome Tidings, 1877; (5) Brightest and Best, 1875; (6) Fountain of Song; (7) Songs of Devotion, 1870;… Go to person page >
