|Lean a little bit closer to Jesus
He is ever so near;
He will not leave nor forsake you
To His side hold dear.
When the world encroaches
On your sanity,
When the demands of the day
Threaten to overwhelm
And lean a little closer to Jesus
Whisper your heart to Him;
He knows the burdens you carry
To your troubles He gives ear.
|When all about you is confusion
When others start to despair,
You have the calming of Jesus
His ever-presence, His continual care.
So lean a little closer to Jesus
Make known your anxieties
To the One able to help you
The One whose love was declared
When the nails were driven,
When such innocent blood was shed.
He will take you back
Just lean a little closer to Him
Confess your heart completely
He’s waiting –
Go on, let Him in.
