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.

Jesu, of thee shall be my song,

To thee my heart and soul belong;

All that I am or have is thine,

And thou, sweet Saviour, thou art mine.

Jesu, my Lord, I thee adore,

O make me love thee more and more. Halleluyah

As I was preparing to pray this morning, I asked God to help me get in the right frame of mind because I seemed to be so distracted by other things. This song immediately came to mind. I consider it a gift from God because reading the lyrics absolutely prepared me to speak to the Lord as “friend to friend. ”
