Hear My Anxious Plea
hear my anxious plea, Lord, hear my prayers.
Lord, hear and answer me, Show Thy loving care.
Each day I cry to Thee. Each hour Iíll trust in thee.
Come, Lord, come near to me, nearer to me.
O Christ, to Thee, Nearer to Thee,
Hear now the prayers I give, Lord, answer me.
And, while to thee I plead, I know my prayers Youíll heed,
Lord, bring me close to Thee, nearer to Thee.
from this very hour, open my heart,
Daily to trust in Thee. Never let me part
From Thee, my Soulís great Love.
From Thee, the whose grace above,
Daily draws me to Thee, nearer to Thee.
