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 remember my mom and grandmother singing this hymn to us children when they were trying to get us to go to sleep. No I am 32 years old with children of my own and I often find myself singing this hymn to them when im getting them to go to sleep. It's just so heart felt and so catchy. I love it and will always hold it dear to My heart. My grandmother has now passed away and this song reminds me of her Everytime I sing it. I pray that my children will song it to their children some day.

I really do like this song that I feel very closer to my God when I sing the song and/or while hearing it.

May God bless all who frankly want to leave their entire life guided by Lord!

Thank you so much and best regards,

My heart's cry. Nearness to God is our privilege, my privilege. He initiates, and only he who accepts the invite will know salvation as it was designed to be known. Yet our flesh, my flesh at times resists, retreats, hides, and these are the lowest times. In God's near presence, there is indeed fullness of joy. All else fades into its rightful smallness. Call me near, my Father; keep me near, I pray.

The Holy spirit inspired me with this hymn just this morning (5. 09am) while I was going about my morning chores. THANK YOU JESUS... There is this joy from the inside of me.

I am blessed by the 4th Stanza

Because I know earthly joy is fleeting as true joy comes from resting in God.

Oh yes, Lord... in the midst that all that is going on in the world, the church, and life, draw me nearer yet to You, blessed Lord.

I am so so hungry for God, my soul longs for Him as in a dry and weary land. Especially as I enter this new year 2018 that He is about to honour me with; I pray He draw me nearer to Himself every moment of my life.
