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.

Just woke up on this soul searching song. It's a blessing to meditate on it.

While unable to sleep tonight this lovely old hymn came to mind. As I read all the verses I realized it was my prayer too. So encouraging to read all the comments of people from near and afar. What a wonderful Savior we serve.

I was doing an appraisal of my life this morning and realized I need to be drawn nearer to the Lord, by the Lord. Draw me nearer O blessed Lord. Amen.

This is my prayer. And the answer is to "Draw near to God and He will Draw near to you". James 4:8.

I feel the Spirit of God moving on people's hearts during this trying time. God's timing and purpose are perfect.

Jesus loves you! Tell others!

Lying on my sofa, and contemplating God's goodness and love, this song just came to my spirit and not remembering all the verses, I got connected.

O the pure delight of a single hour, that before they throne I spend, when I Kneel in prayer.... draw me nearer.....

Father, I want to be where you are.

In my prayer time this evening, this song was on my heart. I was pretty amazed (and comforted) when I saw Samson's comment below from Harbin, China, as we are now in the midst of closures and social distancing because of the Corona virus. I pray that things are looking up for Samson and Harbin, and that all of us will look back and see a life changing time of drawing near our blessed Lord.

Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope!

My heart was drawn to this song tonight. Father, draw me unto You.
