CLOSER TO THEE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Closer, closer would I be
Last Line: Blessed jesus, let me be!
Subject(s): Jesus Christ; Religion; Sin; Theology

Closer, closer would I be
Drawn to Jesus, day by day,
Closer drawn to Him, and further
Drawn from sin and self away.
Closer, closer would I be,
Drawn, O Blessed One, to Thee!

Closer, closer would I be,
Closer to the Crucified,
Closer to the blood-stained Cross,
Closer to His bleeding side.
Closer, closer would I be,
Closer, closer, Lord, to Thee!

Closer, closer, closer, Jesus,
Draw me closer, closer still,
I am trusting, fully trusting,
For I know Thou canst and will.
Closer, closer unto Thee,
Blessed Jesus, let me be!
