One Day Closer

ONE DAY CLOSER
© 2007 & 2017 by Jeff Platts

Verse 1
I am amazed by God’s priceless gift to me,
Forgiveness of my sins and life with Him eternally,
A gift received by a sinner who believed,
That God’s mercy is more powerful than all my treachery.

Chorus
Today I’m one day closer to bein’ with Jesus,
Today I’m one day closer to bein’ with my savior,
Today I’m one day closer, does it make me sorry? No sir,
It fills me with delight to know there’s one less day and night,
That ‘s separating me from bein’ with the Lord.

Verse 2
I am amazed by God’s precious love for me,
A love as vast as all creation, a love that lasts eternally,
The love of His that I deserve is not one single molecule,
I am a worthless stone, but Jesus loves me as a precious jewel.

Repeat Chorus

Bridge
Dyin’ holds no terror for me, Heaven is there waitin’ for me, Jesus has prepared a place for me,

Last Chorus
Today I’m one day closer to bein’ with Jesus,
Today I’m one day closer to bein’ with my savior,
Today I’m one day closer, does it make me sorry? No sir,
It fills me with delight to know there’s one less day and night,
That ‘s separating me from bein’ with the Lord.
Yes it fills me with delight to know there’s one less day and night,
That ‘s separating me from bein’ with the Lord, With the Lord.
