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.

This hymn is divine and not ordinary hymn.. Thank You Holy Spirit!

Please note:

The 4th verse needs to be edited thus;

There are depths of love that I cannot know till I cross the narrow sea; There are heights of joy that I may not reach till I rest in peace with Thee.

Thank you.

Sang this song by my father's hospital bed last year. He breathed his last breath as we sang the last words to the 4th verse. This song will forever hold a special place in my heart.

Absolutely love this hymn. Draw me nearer to thy precious bleeding side. I picture my Lord and savior on the cross every time I sing that line. For once His blood touches you, you'll never be the same again. Thank You Jesus.
