#304: Savior, More Than Life to Me

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

Please note I have a lot of musical events going on today, and am restarting this series with something I seldom do, a subquality soundtrack of my voice, which was overworn Saturday.


Savior, more than lief to me,

I am clinging, clinging close to Thee;

Let Thy precious blood, applied,

Keep me ever, ever near thy side.


Ev’ry day (Ev’ry day and hour), ev’ry hour (ev’ry day and hour),

Let me feel Thy cleansing pow’r;

May Thy tender love to me

Bind me closer, closer, Lord to Thee.


Thru this changing world below,

Lead me gently, gently as I gco;

Trusting Thee, I cannot stray —

I can never, never love my way.



Let me love Thee more and more,

Till this fleeting, fleeting life is o’er,

Till my soul is lost in love

In a brighter, brighter world above;
