Draw Me Savior Nearer


Draw me, Saviour, nearer,
Nearer and nearer to Thee;
Let me see still clearer,
All Thy love for me.
Freed from self, and wholly Thine,
Let me in Thy beauty shine;
While I sing, O may I be
Drawn still closer, closer to Thee,
Closer, closer, closer to Thee.

As the eagles soaring,
Higher and higher ascend,
Thus, while Thee adoring,
Upward I would tend.
Far from earth and sin away,
Nearer heaven’s perfect day;
Even now, O, may I be
Drawn still closer, closer to Thee,
Closer, closer, closer to Thee.

As the river flowing
Daily draws nearer the sea,
Thus may I keep going,
Till I’m lost in Thee.
E’er advance and grow in grace,
Till I see Thee face to face;
Then I’ll sing eternally,
Drawn still closer, closer to Thee,
Closer, closer, closer to Thee.
