Lyrics

Draw Me Near

Written By: Denise Dovel (c) 2008

My hope teeters like a seesaw,
When I no longer stand in awe -
of You - won't You capture my heart again?

My world's spinning out of control,
When I don't seek you with my whole soul,
But still, I hear You calling out my name -

Draw me near, to Your side,
Don't let me live this life of compromise -
Pierce my heart, change my soul -
To You I give complete control of me.

My faith's shattered like a mirror of glass,
When I don't just come to You and ask
For Your mercy once again -

My Lord - Oh -
But still, I hear You calling out my name, oh -

Draw me near, to Your side,
Don't let me live this life of compromise -
Pierce my heart, change my soul -
To You I give complete control of me.

I call Your Name, I cry out, 'Abba Father', come and rescue me -
ou heaer my cry, and I am humbled that you hear and answer -

Draw me near, to Your side,
Don't let me live this life of compromise -
Pierce my heart, change my soul -
To You I give complete control of me.

I give control to You - all to You.
