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

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.
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.
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!
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.

I want God to draw me nearer more than ever before, It seems as if I am a thousands miles far away from my God. Oh God please draw me nearer unto You I pray.

I used to sing this hymn as child when I went to church with my grandmother. Recently I visited my aged mother and we sang it together. It is one of Mummy's favourite hymns. It expresses so much of my desire towards Almighty God. This morning I kept singing it over and over. Thank You Father for the joy of communing with You.

It is sad that a lot of churches have taken this inspirational hymn out of the worship service along with many others. The worship songs today don't have Christ or anything scriptural mentioned in them.
