Lord Jesus, draw my soul to Thee
While on this earth I stay,
O let me Thy salvation see,
Reveal Thyself I pray.
Draw me from earth and all its joys,
Draw me from Satan’s snares,
O may I count these things but toys,
And seek for heavenly shares.
O may Thy Holy Spirit teach
Thy boundless, matchless worth,
And may my soul attracted be,
And sound Thy praises forth.
I want to feel Thy drawing, Lord,
I want to know Thy love,
O bind me to Thine own dear Self,
My heart’s so prone to rove.
Deal with me, Lord, familiarly,
Prepare my heart for Thee,
I am so poor, so foolish, Lord,
Yet Thou canst come to me.
