1.  Draw me, O Lord, to Thee on high,

That I may soar with gladness

To my home above the sky,

Free from sin and sadness.

2.  Draw me, O Lord, to Thee on high,

On that eternal morrow,

When my soul shall cease to sigh

Over pain and sorrow.

3.  Draw me, O Lord, to Thee on high,

My earthly bonds to sever,

And with all Thy saints be nigh

Unto Thee forever.

4.  Draw me, O Lord, to Thee on high

To soar on snow-white pinions,

With a glad triumphant cry,

Thro’ Thy bright dominions.
