I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice

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.

It reminds me how much my Lord Jesus Christ loved me that he took my place, a sinful man like me and he died for me on the cross.

Oh my Jesus died for me and my sins are washed away. Glory hallelujah.

I love this hymn. It gives me zeal to move closer to God, makes me feel He is with me and more importantly, reminds me of the second coming of Jesus Christ.

The perfection of love and joy is in God's presence. That is where I want to be. Please draw me nearer my Lord Jesus Christ.

In the stillness of the morning, with all this COVID 19, I find myself needing a special visit from my Jesus. This song was placed on my heart. One of my 2020 goals is to fall in love with Jesus more and more everyday. Draw me Nearer!!

As others have said, this song came to me during my prayer time this morning. I believe drawing closer to the one and only true Savior, Jesus Christ is the only way to get through this crisis, He is in control.

As my heart has been heavy laden by the unknowns surrounding Covid 19 and the realities we're facing, my neighbor sang the lyrics to this old hymn and solace filled my heart. May the truth of these words bring that special peace that passes all understanding to all. God bless

Daily I have basked in the sunshine of the friendship of my Lord and

Saviour Jesus Christ. This is the song that was on my heart this morning.

I thank Him continually for saving me and allowing me to have a close

relationship with Him.

Early April 16th this song was on my heart. I believe God told me "You Are Mine, Deb"! Awesome! So thankful I heard His voice years ago!
