Bring Me Closer

Bring me closer to The Great I Am.
Bring me closer, closer to The Lamb.
Bring me closer to the throne above,
Bring me closer to the one I love!

Above the shining sea of crystal, high upon His exalted throne,
sits The One who bore the cross alone.
I want to see Him in His glory, and His awesome majesty.
I want to see The One Who died for me.

[Refrain]
Bring me closer to The Great I Am.
Bring me closer, closer to The Lamb.
Bring me closer to the throne above,
Bring me closer to the one I love!

[Bridge]
He gave His all, He paid The Price
He made the greatest sacrifice
He conquered Death and Hell
and now He reigns!
Forever, Love has covered all my sin
His Grace and Mercy took me in
There’s hell to shun and Heaven now to gain!

[Refrain]
Bring me closer to The Great I Am.
Bring me closer, closer to The Lamb.
Bring me closer to the throne above,
Bring me closer to the one I love!

I want to hear the angels singing “All glory to The Holy One”,
As we bow our knee to Christ the Son.
All heaven bowing in His Presence, as The Spirit makes The Call,
and He becomes our All In All.

[Refrain]
Bring me closer to The Great I Am.
Bring me closer, closer to The Lamb.
Bring me closer to the throne above,
Bring me closer to the one I love!

Oh, bring me closer!
