Recording sessions
1965 May 19-20: New York
I am done oh Lord
I have heard Your voice
Told Thy love to me
But I like to rise in the arms of faith
Be closer drawn to Thee

Draw me nearer
Nearer Blessed Lord
To the cross where Thou has died
Draw me nearer
Nearer Blessed Lord
To Thy ever bleeding sign

Consecrate me Lord in Thy service
By the power of grace divine
Let my soul look up
With a steadfast hope
My will be lost in Thine

Draw me nearer
Nearer Blessed Lord
To the cross where Thou has died
Draw me nearer yeah
Nearer Blessed Lord
To Thy ever bleeding sign

My soul look up
With a steadfast hope
My will be lost in Thine

So draw me nearer
Nearer Blessed Lord
To the cross where Thou has died
Draw me nearer
Nearer Blessed Lord
To Thy ever bleeding sign
