I am Thine O Lord Lyrics

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 power of grace divine;
    Let my soul look up with a steadfast

    hope,
    And my will be lost in Thine.

 

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.

 

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!

 

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.

 

There are depths of love that I cannot

     know
     Till I cross the narrow sea;
     There are heights of joy that I may not 

    reach

    Till I rest in peace with 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.
