~I Am Thine, O Lord

       Fanny Crosby wrote this consecration hymn while visiting in the home of the composer of the music, William H. Doane, in Cincinnati. 

       That night, the family’s conversation centered around the blessedness of enjoying the nearness of God.

       Suddenly in a moment of inspiration, Fanny started giving the words of the hymn‑-line by line, verse by verse, and then the chorus.

       Soon after Doane supplied the music, and another of the more than 8,000 Fanny Crosby hymns was born.

       Since that day in 1875, these moving fines have ministered to and challenged countless numbers of God's people to keep their lives dedicated to their Lord.

I Am Thine, O Lord

      

(1) I am Thine, O Lord- I have heard Thy voice,

And it told Thy love to me;

But I long to rise in the arms of faith

And be closer drawn to Thee.

      

CHORUS:

Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,

To the cross where Thou hast died;

Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,

To Thy precious, bleeding side.

      

(2) Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,

By the power of grace divine;

Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope

And my will be lost in Thine.

      

(3) O the pure delight of a single hour

That before Thy throne I spend,

When I kneel in prayer and with Thee, my God,

I commune as friend with friend.

      

(4) There are depths of love that I cannot know

'Til I cross the narrow sea;

There are heights of joy that I may not reach

'Til I rest in peace with Thee.
