1 Would you be free from the bondage of sin?
Quickly to Jesus draw nigh;
Pardon and peace He will give you within,
If you to Jesus draw nigh.

Refrain:
If you to Jesus draw nigh,
And on His grace you rely;
Hear the sweet promise so tender and true,
“He will draw nigh unto you.”

2 Weary and faint are you seeking for rest?
Quickly to Jesus draw nigh;
Rest sweet and true will you find on His breast,
If you to Jesus draw nigh. [Refrain]

3 If the dark waves of temptation o’ertake,
Quickly to Jesus draw nigh;
For your deliv’rance a way He will make,
If you to Jesus draw nigh. [Refrain]

4 When in life’s conflict the foe shall assail,
Quickly to Jesus draw nigh;
He will defend you,—His arm cannot fail,—
If you to Jesus draw nigh. [Refrain]

5 Troubled and tried, do you need a true friend,
Quickly to Jesus draw nigh;
Faithful and true He will be to the end,
If you to Jesus draw nigh. [Refrain]
