1. Nearer, still nearer, close to Thy heart, Draw me, my Savior—so precious Thou art! Fold me, oh, fold me close to Thy breast; Shelter me safe in that “haven of rest”; Shelter me safe in that “haven of rest.”

2. Nearer, still nearer, nothing I bring, Naught as an off’ring to Jesus, my King; Only my sinful, now contrite heart, Grant me the cleansing Thy blood doth impart; Grant me the cleansing Thy blood doth impart.

3. Nearer, still nearer, Lord, to be Thine! Sin, with its follies, I gladly resign, All of its pleasures, pomp and its pride, Give me but Jesus, my Lord crucified; Give me but Jesus, my Lord crucified.

4. Nearer, still nearer, while life shall last, Till safe in glory my anchor is cast; Through endless ages ever to be Nearer, my Savior, still nearer to Thee; Nearer, my Savior, still nearer to Thee!
