A. R. Habershon


JESUS, Himself, drew near,

And joined them as they walked,

And soon their hearts began to burn,

As of Himself He talked:

Draw near, O Lord.


Jesus Himself drew near,

They were no longer sad;

When He was walking at their side,

How could they but be glad?

Draw near, O Lord.


Jesus Himself drew near,

And all their doubts were solved;

He showed them why Christ came to die,

And what that death involved:

Draw near, O Lord.


Jesus Himself drew near,

And at the journey’s end

They could not let Him leave them thus,

The Stranger was their Friend:

Draw near, O Lord.
