Draw Me Nearer

Verse 1:
I am thine Oh Lord, I have heard your voice
And it told Your love to me
But I long to rise in the arms of faith
And be closer drawn to Thee

Draw me nearer,
To the cross where thou hast died
Draw me nearer
To your precious bleeding side

Verse 2:
There are great depths of love that I cannot knowâ
Till I cross that narrow sea
There are heights of joy that I cannot reach
Till I rest in peace with thee

You draw me with Your mercy
You draw with Your love
You draw me with forgiveness by Your blood

You draw me with compassion
You draw me as a bride
You draw me closer to your precious side

Verse 3:
Consecrate me now to Your service Lord
By the power of grace divine
Let me soul look up with a steadfast hope
And my will be lost in Thine
