Sunday Hymn- I Am thine, O Lord

Fanny J. Crosby, 1820-1915
(#314 in "Great Hymns of the Faith)

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 pow'r of grace divine;
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope
And my will be lost in Thine.

O the pure delight of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend,
When I kneel in pray'r and with Thee, my God,
I commune as friend with friend.

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
Till I rest in peace with Thee.

Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord- while the world is raging all around me, it is only nearer to You that I can find peace, joy, and the strength to keep going day after day. It is only nearer to You that I can find my way. Draw me nearer, blessed Lord.
