Draw Me Closer To Thee


Draw me closer to thee
With the joys of peace,
Bid my wand’ring spirit,
From its wand’rings cease;
Let the balm of Gilead,
Heal my wounded heart,
Take it Savior, let it
Never from thee part.

Draw me closer to thee
With the cords of love,
Guide my weak petition
To thy throne above;
Let thy grace supply me,
With thy keeping pow’r,
Let me feel the cleansing
Ev’ry day and hour.

Draw me closer to thee
With the precious hope,
That when life is ended,
Heaven’s gate will ope
To receive my spirit
To that home above,
There to dwell forever,
In my Savior’s love.
