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 was in prayer this morning when the taught of this song came to me and I searched out this site

Oh a pure delight of a single hour

that before thy throne I spend

when I kneel in prayer, and with there my God

I commune as friend with friend.

"Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,

And my will be lost in Thine".

One of the most beautiful prayer-songs ever! Precious Lord, I acknolwedge that I can't navigate this journey on my own. Please Lord, let my wayward be lost in thine perfect one. Amen

I also have been singing this song in my head this morning and when I read the first few comments I knew I had to add mine. I could remember only the first line although I have heard the song most of my life. So I searched and found this site. Thank you for posting this.

I was laying on the bed and a song that I wrote came to my spirit and I started singing and then this song came in my spirit I have heard this so many times but it did not resonate until tonight. I just want God to draw me nearer to him and that I will be used all to his glory and Minister and tell the good news about Jesus Christ. I love the Lord because he heard My Cry.

I was humming this hymn in my spirit when I woke up this morning but I did not remember the lyrics. My wife also joined me also humming.

My daughter came in and she said her daily devotion for about three days was centred around the hymn. My spirit was filled with joy and satisfaction. We searched for the lyrics and and used it for this morning devotion.

Oh Lord, draw us nearer that we may know and have more of You.

Thank You Precious Jesus

I woke up with this song in my heart. And l know God has a purpose for my life. This song has gone a long way calming my fears and doubt. God first loved me even when I did not love Him. To God be all the glory. He's too much to me.
