Who is he who will devote himself to be close to Me? Jeremiah 30:21
If you know Holloway’s full name, or where to get a good photo of him (head-and-shoulders, at least 200×300 pixels), would you ?
Still closer to Jesus! still closer, we pray,
O let us be drawn, blessèd Father, each day;
In midst of our doubts, tribulations and tears,
When close drawn to Jesus, He quiets our fears.
Then closer to Jesus! still closer, we pray,
Oh, let us be drawn, blessèd Father, each day;
While working and singing, with faith and delight,
As homeward we go to the land ever bright.
As down thro’ the vale of life’s sorrows we move,
There’s nothing so joyful and cheerful can prove
As joys of salvation in Jesus our Lord,
And confident trust in our God’s blessèd Word.
His promises precious, all sweet and most choice,
His covenant blessings, in these we rejoice;
On Jesus our Savior, with faith and with prayer,
How firm a foundation! we rest fully there.
On homeward, yes, homeward, fast homeward we go;
Our friends fondly loved we must leave here below;
But over the river, in Heaven so fair,
On far brighter shores, we shall meet them all there.
