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 really touching!

every lyrics of this hymn makes me have a sober reflection about my life.

It's been my source of strength and encouragement in every moments of my despair and hopelessness.

Thanks to the writer!

I can sing this song a thousand times and one. It expresses the emotions I feel and quite put into words when I want to talk to God. One of my favourite hymns.

This morning my spirit was drawn closer onto the Lord when I sang the song during morning devotion. So I decided to check the full lyrics and indeed it is a song with prayers. God bless the soul he used for this song.

The Holy Sprit brought this song to my attention today reminding me to draw nearer, as we draw nearer God draws us in. It is his promise if we seek him, we will find him if we seek him with all our hearts. So this is my prayer today, Draw me nearer Lord 🙏🏾💕 Beautiful beautiful hymn and prayer.

Upon waking up this morning God's Precious Holy Spirit brought this wonderful hymn "Draw Me Nearer/ I Am Thine Oh Lord" into my spirit, as He often does with holy songs on a regular basis. So I promptly went to "Our Place!"..

While bringing The Word of The Lord to His people one Sunday morning, our Heavenly Father said "Make A Place For Me." He meant like make a special place for us to commune together, like as in a prayer closet if you will. (Matthew 6 especially verses 5-15. ) I chose a room in my house that faced the rising son. And I sit in an old light blue velvet rocking chair wherein He and I have had so many wonderful experiences!.. And after singing the chorus to my Precious Lord, (as one ought to sing unto Him when He brings a song to you, ) I looked up these song words on the internet, and then proceeded to sing each verse with the wonderful chorus.. and wept at the place where we sing "Draw me nearer, nearer Precious Lord, to Thy Precious Bleeding side!".. Oh the INTENSE LOVE of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!! His IMMENSE LOVE is beyond what our earthly body can contain! All I can do is simply allow Him to continuously transform me into His Glorious Image where like Him, I am "One With Our Amazing Heavenly Father!!" (John 17 & especially verses 20-26. ) A place where I too can constantly say like Jesus The Christ, The Anointed One.."The Words that I speak are not mine, but the Words of Him that sent me!" (See John 8 especially verses 28-32 & John 12 especially verses 44-50. ) And may I also come to a place where I can constantly say like my Lord Jesus Christ, The Anointed One.." I only do the things that I see my Father do!" (See John 5 especially verses 19-21 & John 14 especially verses 9-26. ) Meaning our elder Brother Jesus Christ, was in constant communion with His (and our) Heavenly Father!!

May you all be blessed!..
