1 Dearest Jesus, draw thou near me, Let thy Spirit dwell with mine;
Open now my ear to hear thee, Take my heart and seal it thine;
Keep me, lead me on my way, Thee to follow and obey,
E'er to do thy will and fear thee, And rejoice to know and hear thee.
2 Underneath thy wings abiding, In thy church, O Savior dear,
Let me dwell, in thee confiding, Hold me in thy faith and fear;
Take away from me each thought That with wickedness is fraught,
Tempting me to disobey thee, Root it out, O Lord, I pray thee.
3 Thou, earth's greatest joy and gladness, And salvation, full and free,
Let thy presence cheer my sadness, And prepare my soul for thee!
In the hour when I depart, Touch my spirit, lips and heart,
With thy word assure, uphold me Till the heav'nly gates enfold me.
