Jesus Draw Me Ever Nearer

This song has particularly ministered to me the last several months. Keith & Kristyn Getty are very gifted, modern hymn writers. I really love their music, but in particular I love the depth of their songs. Margaret Becker colaborated with Keith on this song and Kristyn brought it beautifully to life. If you are going through a difficult season, some challenges or trials, may this song minister to you as it has to me. You can check out more of their music HERE.

Jesus Draw Me Ever Nearer (May this journey)

Jesus draw me ever nearer
As I labour through the storm.
You have called me to this passage,
and I’ll follow, though I’m worn.

May this journey bring a blessing,
May I rise on wings of faith;
And at the end of my heart’s testing,
With Your likeness let me wake.

Jesus guide me through the tempest;
Keep my spirit staid and sure.
When the midnight meets the morning,
Let me love You even more.

Let the treasures of the trial
Form within me as I go –
And at the end of this long passage,
Let me leave them at Your throne.

May this journey bring a blessing,
May I rise on wings of faith;
And at the end of my heart’s testing,
With Your likeness let me wake.
