#314: I am Thine, O Lord

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

1

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.

CHORUS

Draw me nearer, nearer blessed Lord,

(nearer, nearer)

To the Cross where Thou hast died;

Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,

To Thy precious, bleeding side.

2

Consecrate me no to Thy service, Lord

By the pow’r of grace divine;

Let my soul look up ith a steadfast hope

And my will be lost in Thine.

CHORUS

3

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.

CHORUS

4

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.

CHORUS
