The crowd is pressing, thronging Him,
He seems so far away.
I wonder if I'll ever have the strength to make my way.
In desperation, I push through, I must, I must succeed,
In touching One who has the pow'r to meet my every need.
CH: Closer to Jesus, that's where I long to be.
I long to have the hem of His garment just within my reach.
If I draw near to Him, He will draw near to me,
I want to be…closer to Jesus.
I've touched Him, now I know His pow'r
Is more than I could see.
So suddenly, the sin and guilt is gone, and I am free.
He turns to me, and oh, the great compassion in His voice,
Thy faith hath made thee whole, He says,
And now I can rejoice! (Let me be)

This website has original songs from singer/songwriters. You have to weed through them, but there are many very nice songs to choose from. They have some really cute kid's songs and teen choruses. I am always looking for new songs to sing in church that others may have never heard of. There are also a lot of scripture songs, but be aware, not all use the KJV.
