1 Saviour, keep me near Thy side,
Humble, meek, and lowly;
In Thy love may I abide,
Earnest, pure, and holy.

At Thy side, at Thy side,
Purified, forgiven,
Let me ever dwell, dear Lord,
With the saints in heaven.

2 With my eyes still fixed on Thee,
Oh, divinest treasure!
I would sit and be content
With Thy love’s full measure. [Refrain]

3 I would cast my sins on Thee
While I seek Thy favor,
Trusting in Thy precious blood,
All-sufficient Saviour. [Refrain]

4 Saviour, keep me near the cross,
Clinging, fondly clinging,
Till I hear death’s welcome call,
And the angels singing. [Refrain]

5Till I pass on pinions soft,
Through the golden portal,
And my raptured soul shall know
Joys that are immortal. [Refrain]
