Draw Me Nearer, Holy Spirit

 
 

Draw Me Nearer, Holy Spirit
By Tom D Blakely
~

Speak to me O blessed Spirit
Draw me nearer holy Dove,
By the precious words of Jesus
That reveal God’s truth and love.

Do not leave me in the desert
In a parched and barren place,
Pour out streams of living water
Bring me spiritual relief.

You who drew me to salvation
To the cross and Christ my Lord,
Draw me nearer, Holy Spirit
To my Saviour and my God.

~

Lead me not into temptation
That surrounds me every day,
But deliver me from evil
Guide me always Jesus’ way.

May my prayers be pure and fervent
Clear my thoughts from every sin,
How I need You blessed Spirit
To refresh me from within.

You who drew me to salvation
To the cross and Christ my Lord,
Draw me nearer, Holy Spirit
To my Saviour and my God.

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”
[Roman 8:14]
