Near to the Heart of God
Words and Music by Cleland B. McAfee

Isaiah 40:11
"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd:  he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young."

          There is a place of quiet rest,
          Near to the heart of God,
          A place where sin cannot molest,
          Near to the heart of God.

            Chorus
            O Jesus, blessed Redeemer,
            Sent from the heart of God,
            Hold us who wait before Thee,
            Near to the heart of God.

          There is a place of comfort sweet,
          Near to the heart of God,
          A place where we our Savior meet,
          Near to the heart of God.

            Chorus
            O Jesus, blessed Redeemer,
            Sent from the heart of God,
            Hold us who wait before Thee,
            Near to the heart of God.

          There is a place of full release,
          Near to the heart of God,
          A place where all is joy and peace,
          Near to the heart of God.

            Chorus
            O Jesus, blessed Redeemer,
            Sent from the heart of God,
            Hold us who wait before Thee,
            Near to the heart of God.
