Lyrics

Precious Savior, dearest friend,
While we bend the knee,
Come and give our longing hearts
Deeper love to Thee.

Refrain

O Savior, loving Redeemer,
Savior, precious to me,
Grant me, I pray Thee,
More of Thy Spirit,
Drawing me closer,
Closer to Thee.

Come and consecrate us now,
Seal us ever Thine;
May we to Thy holy will
Every power resign.

Refrain

Trusting as a little child
Help us, Lord, to be,
While we ask in simple faith
Deeper love to Thee.

Refrain

Deeper love, yes, deeper love,
This our constant plea;
Deeper love, yes, deeper love,
Till we’re lost in Thee.
