Draw Near

God will set us free from darkness He shall set us free from fear
There is freedom in His presence If we only will draw near.
We can rise with wings like eagles Till the valley disappears
We shall mount up to His mountain If we only will draw near

As we venture ever closer We discover faith's frontier
We must walk a long obedience As the Father draws us near
In the blessings, in the burdens He shall sanctify our tears
And our Joy shall be completed If we only will draw near

So now draw near to the Father Set your mind on things above
For he draws us from the wells of death And showers us with love
As we lift Him up were lifted Brought unto His mercy seat
As we raise our hearts up to Him We discover His heartbeat.

So cleanse your hands, you sinners,  Let His fire your hard heart sear
Purge your hearts, you double-minded.  Mourn and weep with holy tears
Let your laughter turn to mourning  Cease your joy as gloom appears
Humble yourselves before God- He'll exalt and draw you near.

We shall diligently seek Him We'll pursue and persevere
Our persistence is rewarded By his very presence here
For if we seek we find Him And our vision He shall clear
We shall see His very glory If we only will draw near.
We shall see His very glory If we only will draw near.
