Nearer Still Nearer
 
Nearer still nearer close to thy heart,
Draw me my savior, so precious thou art;
Hold me, O hold me close to thy breast,
Shelter me safe in that haven of rest
Shelter me safe in that haven of rest
      
Nearer, still nearer, nothing I bring,
Naught as an offering to Jesus my king,
Only my sinful, now contrite heart;
Grant me the cleansing thy blood does impart (2)
      
Nearer, still nearer, Lord to be thine;
Sin, with it’s follies, I gladly resign,
All of its pleasures, pomp and it’s pride;
Give me but Jesus my Lord crucified (2)
      
Nearer, still nearer, while life shall last,
‘Till safe in glory my anchor is cast;
Thro’ end less ages, ever to be
Nearer my savior, still nearer to thee (2)
