(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;
