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."

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.

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.

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!

The Gospel song, "Nearer, Still Nearer" was composed by Leila Morris in 1898.
