Nearer, Nearer

The bridge to this song is adapted from Sarah Flower Adams' hymn "Nearer My God to Thee."

Nearer, Nearer

Verse 1
They haunt my steps
My face is gaunt
I hear them breathe
Proving to me
That they're not gone
Their hands of fire
Their evil eyes
They pull me in
Under my skin
I cannot hide

Chorus
But there is a Name that makes them tremble
They can't assemble
When Christ is here
The very sight of my God makes them
Shake and hide and
God draws me near

Verse 2
I hear their voice
Calling my name
I stop to listen
Their lies glisten
Drawing me to their game
I want to run
I want to fight
But they grab my hand
And I know I can't
Flee them tonight

Chorus
But there is a Name that makes them tremble
They can't assemble
When Christ is here
The very sight of my God makes them
Shake and hide and
God draws me near

Bridge
Draw me nearer, nearer
To the cross where You have died
Draw me closer, closer
To Your precious, bleeding side

Chorus
And there is a Name that makes them tremble
They can't assemble
When Christ is here
The very sight of my God makes them
Shake and hide and
God draws me near

Nearer, nearer
Nearer, nearer

The End
