Draw me nearer

Tonight's out-of-the-blue song in my head:

I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice,
And it told Thy love to me;
But I long to rise in the arms of faith
And be closer drawn to Thee.

Draw me nearer, nearer blessèd Lord,
To the cross where Thou hast died.
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer blessèd Lord,
To Thy precious, bleeding side.

Longing to rise in the arms of faith... being closer drawn to him... consecrated to his service by his power... my soul looking up with a steadfast hope... my will being lost in His... resting in peace with Him.

Oh, I long!
