Representative Text

1 Still closer to Jesus! still closer, we pray,
O let us be drawn, blessed Father, each day;
In mid’st of our doubts, tribulations and tears,
When close drawn to Jesus, he quiets our fears.

Refrain:
Then closer to Jesus! still closer, we pray,
Oh, let us be drawn, blessed Father, each day;
While working and singing, with faith and delight,
As homeward we go to the land ever bright.

2 As down thro’ the vale of life’s sorrows we more,
There’s nothing so joyful and cheerful can prove
As joys of salvation in Jesus our Lord,
And confident trust in our God’s blessed word. [Refrain]

3 His promises precious, all sweet and most choice,
His covenant blessings,—in these we rejoice:
On Jesus our Saviour, with faith and with prayer,
How firm a foundation! we rest fully there. [Refrain]

4 On homeward, yes, homeward, fast homeward we go;
Our friends fondly loved we must leave here below;
But over the river, in heaven so fair,
On far brighter shores, we shall meet them all there. [Refrain]
