Since we have con­fi­dence to come to God,
Since Je­sus made a way by His own blood,
Since He the veil did tear,
A liv­ing way made clear,
Our great High Priest is e’er,
Let us draw near.

Let us draw near to God, let us draw near;
With all sin­ce­ri­ty, let us draw near.
Fully as­sured in faith,
With hearts cleansed by His grace,
All guilt and sin erased,
Let us draw near.

Let us hold to our hope, let us e’er hope,
In God’s sal­va­tion great, let us e’er hope.
God’s pro­mis­es are true;
He’s al­ways faith­ful, too;
What He has said, He’ll do;
Let us e’er hope.

Let us spur oth­ers on, let us spur on;
Let us con­si­der how we may spur on.
Let us urge oth­ers to
Show love in all they do,
And good deeds e’er pur­sue;
Let us spur on.

Let us keep meet­ing e’er, let us still meet;
Till Christ re­turns one day, let us still meet.
Let us en­cour­age e’er,
Christ’s soon re­turn de­clare,
Till we His glo­ry share,
Let us still meet.
