                                  Text From:

                       THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL

        (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. Draw us to Thee,

        For then shall we

        Walk in Thy steps forever

        And hasten on

        Where Thou art gone

        To be with Thee, dear Savior.

        2.  Draw us to Thee,

        Lord, lovingly;

        Let us depart with gladness

        That we may be

        Forever free

        From sorrow, grief, and sadness.

        3. Draw us to Thee;

        Oh, grant that we

        May walk the road to heaven!

        Direct our way

        Lest we should stray

        And from Thy paths be driven.

        4. Draw us to Thee

        That also we

        Thy heavenly bliss inherit

        And ever dwell

        Where sin and hell

        No more can vex our spirit.

        5. Draw us to Thee


        Into Thy kingdom take us;

        Let us fore'er

        Thy glory share,

        Thy saints and joint heirs make us.
