Hymn
I Am Thine, O Lord

1. I am thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice, And it told Thy love to me.
But I long to rise in the arms of faith, And be closer drawn to Thee.

2. Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord, By the pow’r of grace divine.
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope, and my will be lost in Thine.

3. O the pure delight of a single hour That before Thy throne I spend;
When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God, I commune as friend with friend!

4. There are depths of love that I cannot know Till I cross the narrow sea;
There are heights of joy that I may not reach Till I rest in peace with Thee.

Chorus
Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord, to the cross where Thou hast died,
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord, To Thy precious bleeding side.

Closing Song
The Family of God

I’m so glad I’m a part of the family of God – I’ve been washed in the fountain, cleansed by His blood! Joint heirs with Jesus as we travel this sod; For I’m part of the family, the family of God.
