Nearer, Still Nearer ~ hymn

A very sweet, kind lady, a sister in Christ, passed away this week. Her presence and her influence will be greatly missed. In honor of her, I am sharing one of the songs we sung while we spent time remembering her on Friday. May God bless you today.

Blessings,
At Home

Nearer Still Nearer
Nearer, Still Nearer

lyrics & music: Leila N. Morris (1898)

1 Nearer, still nearer, close to thy heart,
draw me, my Savior, so precious thou art.
Fold me, O 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 offering 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.
