Lyrics:J. L. Lyne
Music:John Henry Lester

This hymn has a unique tune.


Let me come closer to Thee, Lord Jesus,

Oh, closer day by day;

Let me lean harder on Thee, Lord Jesus,

Yes, harder, all the way.


Let me show forth Thy beauty, Lord Jesus,

Like sunshine on the hills;

Oh, let my lips pour forth all Thy sweetness

In joyous sparkling rills.


Yes, like a channel, precious Lord Jesus,

Make me and let me be;

Keep me and use me daily, Lord Jesus,

For Thee, for only Thee.


In all my heart and will, O Lord Jesus,

Be altogether king;

Make me a loyal subject, Lord Jesus,

To Thee in everything.


Thirsting and hungering for Thee, Lord Jesus,

With blessed hunger here.

Longing for New Jerusalem's fullness —

No thirst, no hunger there.
