Sunday's Song- I Am Thine, O Lord

This is a song that's been on my mind tonight. I hope you all have a blessed Sunday!

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. 
Refrain:
 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. 

2. Consecrate me now to thy service, Lord, 
 by the power of grace divine; 
 let my soul look up with a steadfast hope, 
 and my will be lost in thine. 
 (Refrain) 

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! 
 (Refrain) 

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. 
 (Refrain)

What a great old hymn Nancy; I haven't heard that in a long time. Hope you and your family have a good day.

One of my favorites too. It always makes me think of Pap.
