Savior, more than life to me, I am clinging, clinging, close to Thee; Let Thy precious blood applied, Keep me ever, ever near Thy side.Refrain: Ev’ry day, ev’ry hour, Let me feel Thy cleansing pow’r; May Thy tender love to me Bind me closer, closer, Lord to Thee.2. Through this changing world below, Lead me gently, gently as I go; Trusting Thee, I cannot stray, I can never, never lose my way.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.
