1. I am Thine, O Lord, I have head 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 way that Thou hast shown;
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord, to Thy ever ruling throne.
2. 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.
3. 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!
4. There are depths of love that I cannot know till I have immortality;
There are heights of joy that I may not reach till I rest in peace with Thee.
