  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.
     Draw me nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
     To the way that thou hast shown.
     Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
     To Thy ever ruling throne.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. There are depths of love that I cannot know
     Till I have immortality;
     There are heights of joy that I may not reach
     Till I rest in peace with Thee.
