1. I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice,
      And it told Thy love to me;
    But I long to rise in the arms of faith,
      And be closer drawn to Thee.
    • Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
        To the cross where Thou hast died;
      Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
          To Thy precious, bleeding side.
  2. Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,
      By the pow’r of grace divine;
    Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,
      And my will be lost in Thine.
  3. O the pure delight of a single hour
      That before Thy throne I spend,
    When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God,
      I commune as friend with friend!
  4. There are depths of love that I yet may know
      Ere Thee face to face I see;
    There are heights of joy that I yet may reach
      Ere I rest in peace with Thee.
