And it told thy love to me;

And be closer drawn to thee.

Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord, 
To the cross where thou hast died. 
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord, 
To thy precious, bleeding side.

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.

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!

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.

I am thine, save me; For I have sought thy precepts.
