Hymn/Song Information

Nearer blessed Jesus To Thy wounded




Nearer, blessed Jesus,
To Thy wounded side;
Nearer to Thy heart of love,
Would my soul abide;
There alone is safety
There alone is rest,
When beset with danger,
When with guilt opprest.


Purer, Saviour, purer,
may I ever be,
Free from ev’ry earthly stain,
More, O Lord, like Thee;
List’ning ‘mid the tempest
For Thy “Peace, be still!”
Trusting when in darkness,
Resting in Thy will.


Watching, ever watching,
Even unto prayer;
Leaving all with Jesus,
Yielding every care;
Trusting, fully trusting
Every promise sweet;
Learning life’s great lesson
At Thy precious feet.


Waiting, only waiting
Till the hour shall come,
When with joy I’ll meet Him there,
In the heavenly home;
Oh, for that glad morning,
When my Lord again,
“Glorified in all His saints,”
Comes with them to reign!
