Come A Little Closer

1. I can see the piercing deep within Your eyes,

That lovely twinkle that sets my soul on fire,

I can feel Your presence, it’s my hearts desire,

Oh, come a little closer to my heart.

 

2. I feel so lonely lest You’re by my side,

I feel so hurt when You’re not satisfied,

Just to please You I forget all my pride,

My Lord without You there’s no life,

 

3. Oh, just a little closer to me, love divine,

Just a little closer to me, Savior of mine,

Put Your arms around me satisfy my weary mind,

Oh, just a little closer to my heart.

 

4. They pierced my lover there at Calvary,

They took and hurt Him on the rugged tree,

He brought salvation, friend, to you and me,

Lord, come a little closer to my heart.

 

Chorus:

Come a little closer to me, Savior of mine,

Come a little closer, You’re so tender and kind,

Be unto me as a clinging vine,

Oh, come a little closer to my heart.
