Draw Nigh To Us O God Of Hosts


Draw nigh to us, O God of hosts,
And fill us to the uttermost
With zeal to work for Thee today,
In Thine all-wise appointed way;
Reveal Thy will in us, and show
Thy hand divine, that we may know
We are Thy children, Thou our Guide
And hiding place, whate’er betide.

Refrain:
Draw nigh, draw nigh, Immanuel,
In grandeur and in majesty reveal Thyself today;
Rejoice, rejoice, O Israel,
Thy God Omnipotent shall reign with universal sway:
In grandeur and in majesty reveal Thyself today;
Thy God Omnipotent shall reign with universal sway.

Draw nigh to us, O Mighty One!
Our shelter be from sun to sun;
Our Alpha and Omega Thou
Before whom every knee shall bow;
Deliver us from every sin;
In us a mighty work begin;
Increase our faith, our strength renew,
Fit us a mighty work to do. [Refrain]

Draw nigh to us, Immanuel,
Thou Mighty God of Israel!
Once more from Sinai’s flaming height
Speak, that we may be led aright;
Almighty, everlasting
King of kings, with contrite hearts we sing,
The righteous majesty and love
Of Him who built the heav’ns above. [Refrain]
