I Am Thine, Lord

 I am Thine Lord

 

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

‘Til 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.
