Closer Lord to Thee I cling




Closer, Lord, to Thee I cling,
Closer still to Thee;
Safe beneath Thy shelt’ring wing
I would ever be;
Rude the blast of doubt and sin,
Fierce assaults without, within:
Help me, Lord, the battle win—
Closer, Lord, to Thee!


Closer yet, O Lord, my Rock,
Refuge of my soul;
Dread I not the tempest-shock,
Though the billows roll:
Wildest storm cannot alarm
For to me can come no harm,
Leaning on Thy loving arm—
Closer, Lord, to Thee!


Closer still, my Help, my Stay,
Closer, closer still;
Meekly there I learn to say,
“Father, not my will!”
Learn that in affliction’s hour,
When the clouds of sorrow lour,
Love directs Thy hand of power—
Closer, Lord, to Thee!


Closer, Lord, to Thee I come,
Light of life Divine;
Through the ever blessed Son,
Joy and peace are mine;
Let me in Thy love abide,
Keep me ever near Thy side,
In the “Rock of Ages” hide—
Closer, Lord, to Thee!
