JESUS DRAW ME EVER NEARER

[Verse 1]
Jesus draw me ever nearer
As I labor thro’ the storm
You have called me to this passage
And I’ll follow tho’ I’m worn

[Chorus]
May this journey bring a blessing
May I rise on wings of faith
And at the end of my heart’s testing
With Your likeness let me wake

[Verse 2]
Jesus guide me thro’ the tempest
Keep my spirit staid and sure
When the midnight meets the morning
Let me love You even more

[Chorus]
May this journey bring a blessing
May I rise on wings of faith
And at the end of my heart’s testing
With Your likeness let me wake

[Verse 3]
Let the treasures of the trial
Form within me as I go
And at the end of this long passage
Let me leave them at Your throne

[Chorus]
May this journey bring a blessing
May I rise on wings of faith
And at the end of my heart’s testing
With Your likeness let me wake

[Outro]
Jesus draw me ever nearer
Jesus draw me ever nearer
Jesus draw me ever nearer to You
To You

JESUS KEEP ME NEAR THE CROSS

[Verse 1]
Jesus, keep me near the cross –
There a precious fountain,
Free to all, a healing stream,
Flows from Calvary’s mountain.
In the cross, in the cross
Be my glory ever,
Till my raptured soul shall find
Rest, beyond the river.

[Verse 2]
Near the cross, a trembling soul,
Love and mercy found me;
There the Bright and Morning Star
Sheds its beams around me.
In the cross, in the cross
Be my glory ever,
Till my raptured soul shall find
Rest, beyond the river.

[Verse 3]
Near the cross! O Lamb of God,
Bring its scenes before me;
Help my walk from day to day
With its shadows o’er me.
In the cross, in the cross
Be my glory ever,
Till my raptured soul shall find
Rest, beyond the river.

[Verse 4]
Near the cross I’ll watch and wait,
Hoping, trusting ever,
Till I reach the golden strand
Just beyond the river.
In the cross, in the cross
Be my glory ever,
Till my raptured soul shall find
Rest, beyond the river.

JESUS PAID IT ALL

[Verse 1]
I hear the Saviour say,
“Thy strength indeed is small!
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all.”

[Chorus]
Jesus paid it all, All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain-
He washed it white as snow.

[Verse 2]
Lord, now indeed I find
Thy pow’r, and thine alone,
Can change the leper’s spots
And melt the heart of stone.

[Chorus]
Jesus paid it all, All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain-
He washed it white as snow.

[Verse 3]
For nothing good have I
Whereby Thy grace to claim-
I’ll wash my garments white
In the blood of Calvary’s Lamb.

[Chorus]
Jesus paid it all, All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain-
He washed it white as snow.

[Verse 4]
And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete,
“Jesus died my soul to save,”
My lips shall still repeat.

[Chorus]
Jesus paid it all, All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain-
He washed it white as snow.

JESUS, THANK YOU

[Verse 1]
The mystery of the cross
I cannot comprehend
The agonies of Calvary
You the perfect holy One
crushed Your Son
Who drank the bitter cup reserved for me

[Chorus]
Your blood has washed away my sin
Jesus, thank You
The Father’s wrath completely satisfied
Jesus, thank You
Once Your enemy now seated at Your table
Jesus, thank You

[Verse 2]
By Your perfect sacrifice
I’ve been brought near
Your enemy You’ve made Your friend
Pouring out the riches
of Your glorious grace
Your mercy and Your kindness know no end

[Chorus]
Your blood has washed away my sin
Jesus, thank You
The Father’s wrath completely satisfied
Jesus, thank You
Once Your enemy now seated at Your table
Jesus, thank You

[Bridge]
Lover of my soul, I want to live for You!

[Chorus]
Your blood has washed away my sin
Jesus, thank You
The Father’s wrath completely satisfied
Jesus, thank You
Once Your enemy now seated at Your table
Jesus, thank You
