1. Nearer, dear Savior, to thee,
Nearer, nearer to thee
Ever I’m striving to be
Nearer, yet nearer to thee!
Trusting, in thee I confide;
Hoping, in thee I abide.
Take, oh, take, and cherish me,
Nearer, dear Savior, to thee.

2. Nearer, dear Savior, to thee,
Nearer, nearer to thee
Proved by my trials, I’ll be
Nearer, yet nearer to thee!
Humbly I come to thee now;
Earnest, I prayerfully bow.

3. Nearer, dear Savior, to thee,
Nearer, nearer to thee
Ever my anthem will be
Nearer, yet nearer to thee!
Loving thee, ever I pray,
Aid me thy will to obey.

4. Nearer, dear Savior, to thee,
Nearer, nearer to thee
Let me by holiness be
Nearer, yet nearer to thee!
When all my trials are done,
When my reward I have won,
Take, oh, take, and cherish me,
Nearer, dear Savior, to thee.
