DRAW ME CLOSE TO YOU

I really love this song! It's one of my favorites! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!


Draw me close to You
Never let me go
I lay it all down again
To hear You say that I'm Your friend

You are my desire
No one else will do
'Cause nothing else could take Your place
To feel the warmth of Your embrace
Help me find the way
Bring me back to You

You're all I want
You're all I've ever needed
You're all I want
Help me know You are near

Sarah, I have to tell you my story about this song! The first time I heard it was at church several months ago. At first, I was kind of critical of it, and I thought, "This song is kind of lame. It says 'Help me know you are near,' - as if I'm not really sure that Jesus is near or something? And it says 'never let me go' - what, like I'm afraid God is just going to let me go one day?" I was pretty critical of it, until Jesus whispered to my soul "Hush, my sweet one, while I sing to you." That surprised me, but then as I started listening to the song as if it were Him singing it to me instead of the other way around, it absolutely blew me away! I am His desire! Not just anyone will do! He wants ME!!! He loves me as if I were the only one! No one else will do! And everything that He's done for me, He would do all over again if He had to!!! Just to feel me hold Him close! As if I'm something!!!! But you know what?..... I am. The thought is overwhelming. Now that song is super, super special to me. Thanks for posting it.
