Draw Near

First-Place Song
1. As I kneel tonight at bedside at the closing of this day,
I turn my thoughts t’ward Thee and I bow my head to pray.
Then I pause for just a moment as I try to feel Thy love,
And I wonder do my words reach Thee in heaven up above?
2. Lord, I thank Thee for my fam’ly. They are kind and dear to me.
I want to have them near me throughout all eternity.
Now I ask to keep me humble and to bless all those need.
Father help me to remember who I am in word and deed.
Father, are you list’ning? Can you hear my plea?
Draw near unto me, Father, as I draw near unto Thee.
Draw near unto me, Father, I will draw near unto Thee.
