Hymn/Song Information

Purer yet and purer I would be in mind




Purer yet and purer,
I would be in mind,
Dearer yet and dearer,
every duty find;


Hoping still, and trusting
God without a fear,
Patiently believing
He will make all clear.


Calmer yet and calmer,
trial bear and pain,
Surer yet and surer,
peace at last to gain;


Suffering still and doing,
to His will resigned,
And to God subduing
heart and will and mind.


Higher yet and higher,
out of clouds and night,
Nearer yet and nearer,
rising to the Light;


Light serene and holy,
where my soul may rest,
Purified and lowly,
sanctified and blessed.


Quicker yet and quicker,
ever onward press,
Firmer yet and firmer,
step as I progress;


Oft these earnest longings
swell within my breast,
Yet their inner meaning
ne’er can be expressed.


---Alternative verses---


Calmer yet and calmer,
in the hour of pain,
Surer yet and surer,
peace at last to gain;


Suffering still and doing,
to His will resigned,
And to joy subduing
heart and will and mind.


Higher yet and higher,
out of clouds and sight,
Nearer yet and nearer,
rising to the Light;


Light serene and holy,
where my soul may rest,
Purified and holy,
sanctified and blessed.


Swifter yet and swifter,
ever onward run,
Firmer yet and firmer,
step as I go on;
