​Lyrics (Hymn #165)

"Jesus, Draw Me Ever Nearer"

Music and Lyrics: Keith Getty and Margaret Becker

 

​​Verse 1

Jesus, draw me ever nearer

As I labor through the storm.

You have called me to this passage,

and I’ll follow though I’m worn.

​Refrain

May this journey bring a blessing,

may I rise on wings of faith;

And at the end of my heart’s testing,

with Your likeness let me wake.

 

 

Verse 2

Jesus, guide me through the tempest,

keep my spirit staid and sure.

When the midnight meets the morning,

let me love You even more.

​​

 

​Verse 3

May the treasures of the trial

form within me as I go;

At the end of this long passage,

let me leave them at Your throne.
