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.

On April 3, 2019 @ 9:37 am I heard the refrain of this song in my spirit. Workers came to install something in my station so I found a quiet place to sit in the presence of the Lord;? and wow I did not know how great His loving Presence for me at that moment through these words of this hymn were. All I could do was release the insurmountable weight I felt and weep. Jesus instantly removed it and filled me with consolation and strength. When I came home, I began to think on all that must be accomplished and as I was thinking to ask, ‘how am I going to get all this done’, before I thought the complete question, the hymn was playing again in my spirit and I know in, with, through Christ by the Holy Spirit is how I must live.

In my devotional this morning the Apostle Paul’s word to the church in Philippi came to me “that I might know Him in the power of His resurrection. In the fellowship of His suffering, being made conformance unto His death. ” This hymn so vividly depicts this heart’s desire. It really blessed me today.

This hymn dropped into my soul when I was cleaning my home this morning. Cleanliness is next to Godliness. I plead O Lord, draw me nearer to Thee. Thank you for the lyrics.
