Representative Text

1 Thou whose hand thus far hath led me,
Whereso-e’er my path may be;
Lord, I pray that Thou wilt ever
Draw and keep me near to Thee.

Near to Thee, O Lord, to Thee,
Draw me ever near to Thee.

2 When the way is dark and cheerless,
When no ray of light I see,
May Thine arms of love and mercy
Draw me ever near to Thee. [Refrain]

3 Thou in whom my soul is trusting,
Hope of life and joy to me;
While on earth a pilgrim stranger,
Draw me ever near to Thee. [Refrain]
