Nearer, still nearer, close to my Lord;
I will seek Jesus in prayer and the Word.
As I draw near to my precious Lord:
His Word has promised His Spirit outpoured!
His Word has promised His Spirit outpoured!

Each day I’ll follow His blest commands,
Each day I’ll praise Him and cling to His hand.
Walking with Jesus I’ll surely find
All my desires in Jesus are mine!
All my desires in Jesus are mine!

Help of the helpless, my blessèd Lord!
Caring for each one, in love watching o’er;
Holy compassion guarding our way:
Jesus my Shepherd, help me not to stray,
Jesus my Shepherd, help me not to stray.

Nearer still nearer, to end of time.
Speaking His gospel salvation divine.
Showing His way and doing His will:
Some day in Heaven our joy be fulfilled!
Some day in Heaven our joy be fulfilled!
