1. Nearer, dear Savior, to thee,Nearer, nearer to thee—Ever I’m striving to beNearer, yet nearer to thee!Trusting, in thee I confide;Hoping, in thee I abide.
[Chorus]Take, oh, take, and cherish me,Nearer, dear Savior, to thee.
2. Nearer, dear Savior, to thee,Nearer, nearer to thee—Proved by my trials, I’ll beNearer, yet nearer to thee!Humbly I come to thee now;Earnest, I prayerfully bow.
