#322: Near to Thy Heart

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1
Near to Thy heart, O Christ divine,
Leaning like John on Thy breast --
Till with Thy glory I will shine,
Near to Thy heart I'd rest.
2
Near to Thy heart O may I be,
Hearing Thy sweet words of love,
Learning Thy precious will for me,
Seeking those things above.
3
Near to Thy heart where all is peace,
Lost in the light of Thy face,
There will my faith and trust increase,
There will I grow in grace.
