#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.

1

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.

CHORUS

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.

2

Thru this changing world below,

Lead me gently, gently as I gco;

Trusting Thee, I cannot stray —

I can never, never love my way.

CHORUS

3

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;

CHORUS
