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.

As I was meditating, the Lord drop this song in my spirit and immediately I searched out the lyrics and sang it with the whole of my heart as if my life depends on it. And made a prayer of God revealing the true essence of His crucifixion to me. And drawing me nearer to Him on a daily basis. Shalom.

Praise the Lord Jesus. This song haven’t crossed my mind in decades and just came to me as I sat in the laundromat. Couldn’t remember the lyrics and I looked it up. Looking for that day when I will finally reach the heights of joy and the length of love, when I’m safe in the arms of Jesus. What a blessed assurance!! Have a blessed day on purpose.

The verse four is so key

It keeps coming at me.

The lyrics always so deep and refreshing

Reveals the love that keeps my soul going

The Cross, where it did start

Thank You Jesus for Your heart

I will see You one day

In glory all the way

As I knelt to pray this morning this song came to mind like others I read about here and I fumbled through the second and third verses so I googled the lyrics. So glad I did! Not only am I blessed by this song but the song of the church universal and eternal rising up before the throne. Just when I was feeling discouraged by the overwhelming rise of false teaching and confusion that the enemy brings upon the world stronger each day, I see that God always keeps a remnant for Himself as a beacon of Truth and light. ❤️

I loved reading the comments and wanted to add to them. I, like several other texts, was led to this song by our Lord. Was praying and the song came to my mind! What a comfort! And reading how the Lord led some others to look up the words on this site as I felt He did me is such a blessing!

Oh what a Saviour

God lead me to this site this morning while after reading His Word.

The song draw me nearer came to my mind and I couldn't remember all the lyrics, so I Googled it and this site was first to pop up.

I want to be drawn nearer to God.

The comments touched me as I relate to other believers.

Did I mention, OH WHAT A SAVIOUR!

O the pure delight of a single hour!

I enjoy prayer because God the Creator of ALL the Heavens and the Earth takes the time to meekly have a conversation with me - a filthy blood-cleansed mortal man; courtesy of Jesus Christ.

One hour sounds so much but He doesn't mind much more.

O what a perfect God!!

Thank You JESUS!

The impact of this song is huge. The LORD uses it to speak deep things into my life at different times. He wakes me up once in a while with this song when He wants to impart me just like He did today, I was singing the song and woke up and I rushed here to get the full lyrics but I will make effort to memorize it.

Thank you and God bless you for putting this song here.

.... similar to the last post, I woke up this morning with the beginning of this hymn singing in my heart but I couldn't remember all the lyrics.

This song is a blessing to the repentant heart that wants peace with God so more than the folly of this present world we live in!
