607. I Am Thine, O Lord

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 cross where thou hast died;
draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
to thy precious, bleeding side.

2 Consecrate me now to thy service, Lord,
by the pow'r of grace divine;
let my soul look up with a steadfast hope
and my will be lost in thine. [Refrain]

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. [Refrain]

4 There are depths of love that I cannot know
'til I cross the narrow sea;
there are heights of joy that I may not reach
'til I rest in peace with thee. [Refrain]
