1. Since we have confidence to come to God,
Since Jesus made a way by His own blood,
Since He the veil did tear,
A living way made clear,
Our great High Priest is e’er,
Let us draw near.

2. Let us draw near to God, let us draw near;
With all sincerity, let us draw near.
Fully assured in faith,
With hearts cleansed by His grace,
All guilt and sin erased,
Let us draw near.

3. Let us hold to our hope, let us e’er hope,
In God’s salvation great, let us e’er hope.
God’s promises are true;
He’s always faithful, too;
What He has said, He’ll do;
Let us e’er hope.

4. Let us spur others on, let us spur on;
Let us consider how we may spur on.
Let us urge others to
Show love in all they do,
And good deeds e’er pursue;
Let us spur on.

5. Let us keep meeting e’er, let us still meet;
Till Christ returns one day, let us still meet.
Let us encourage e’er,
Christ’s soon return declare,
Till we His glory share,
Let us still meet.
