The hand of the diligent shall bear rule,
but the slothful shall be put to forced labor.

Let Me Come Closer to Thee, Jesus
Let me come closer to Thee, Jesus, oh, closer day by day; Let me lean harder on Thee, Jesus, yes, harder all the way.
Let me show forth Thy beauty, Jesus, like sunshine on the hills; Oh, let my lips pour forth Thy sweetness in joyous sparkling rills.
Yes, like a fountain, precious Jesus, make me and let me be; Keep me and use me daily, Jesus, for Thee, for only Thee.
In all my heart and will, O Jesus, be altogether King; Make me a loyal subject, Jesus, to Thee in everything.
Thirsting and hungering for Thee, Jesus, with blessed hunger here, Longing for home on Zion’s mountain, no thirst, no hunger there. AMEN.
