Nearer, still nearer

Nearer, still nearer close to Thy  heart,
C           G          Em  A     A7   D
Draw me, my Savior, so pre-cious thou art;
G          D/F♯ G  C     D/C  G/B  D      D7
Fold me, O fold me close to   Thy  breast,
Em  Gmaj7  C  G            D     D7/F♯ G
Shelter    me safe in that Haven of    Rest

Shelter  me safe in  that Ha - ven   of  Rest

Nearer, still nearer, no - thing I    bring,
C            G           Em   A    A7  D
Naught as an offering to Je - sus, my  King;
G       D/F♯  G    C   D/C   G/B   D     D7
Only my sin - ful, now con - trite heart,
Em    Gmaj7  C  G             D          D7/F♯ G
Grant me    the cleansing Thy blood doth im - part,

Nearer, still nearer, Lord, to be   Thine!
C             G          Em    A   A7   D
Sin, with its follies, I gla - dly re - sign,
G          D/F♯G      C    D/C  G/B  D     D7
All of its pleasures, pomp and  its  pride,
Em   Gmaj7  C   G         D        D7/F♯ G
Give me     but Jesus, my Lord, crucif - ied,
C    D/C  C   G/D  A7-5/E♭  G/D   Bm/D  D7   G
Give me   but Je - sus, my  Lord, cru - ci - fied.
G             D/F♯    Em    C    C/E   G
Nearer, still nearer, while life shall last,

'Til safe in glory my an - chor is  cast;
G               D/F♯ G   C    D/C  G/B  D  D7
Through endless ag - es, ev - er   to   be,
Em    Gmaj7  C  G             D      D7/F♯ G
Nea - rer,   my Savior, still nearer to    Thee,
C  D/C  C  G/D  A7-5/E♭     G/D   Bm/D  D7  G
Nearer, my Sa - vior, still nea - rer   to  Thee.
