Representative Text

1 Press me closer to thy heart;
Send responsive thrills thro’ mine, thro’ mine,
Give to me the better part
Whisper gently I am thine.

Press me closer,
Press me closer
On thy bosom let me rest;
Press me closer,
Press me closer,
Let me lean upon thy breast.

2 Press me closer still each day,
Keep temptation from my heart, my heart;
Let me never go astray,
From thy precepts ne’er depart. [Refrain]

3 Press me closer when I’m sad,
When thro’ sorrow I am led, am led
May thy presence make me glad;
Show’ring blessings on my head. [Refrain]

4 Press me closer in thy love,
As in death my eyes shall close, shall close,
Take me to thy home above,
On thy bosom to repose. [Refrain]
