Jackson became one of the most influential gospel singers in the world and was heralded internationally as a singer and civil rights activist. She was described by entertainer Harry Belafonte as "the single most powerful black woman in the United States".

Nearer to Thee I want to be
I want to dig a little deeper in the store-house of his love, God's love
Ooh, I want to shine with love sublime
I want to dig a little deeper in the store-house of God's love

Ooh, I want to dig a little deeper in God's love
Dig a little deeper in God's love
Dig a little deeper in God's love, his love, our love
Oh Lord, I want to talk more like a Christian should
Walk more like my Jesus would

I want to dig a little deeper in the store-house of his love
Oh Lord, I wan' dig a little deeper in God's love 
Dig a little deeper in God's love
Dig a little deeper in his love, oh, his love

Oh Lord, I'll just talk more like a Christian should
Walk more like my Jesus would
I gon' dig a little deeper in the store-house of god's love
I want to do what's always true
I want to dig a little deeper in God's love, his love, our love

Each passing hour, oh Lord, I'll walk my path, my Lord
I want to dig a little deeper in the store-house of God's love
Oh Lord, I will dig a little deeper in God's love
Dig a little deeper in God's love
Dig a little deeper in the store-house of his love, oh, lord
Oh Lord, I want to talk more like a Christian should
Walk more like my Jesus would

I want to dig a little deeper in the store-house of God's love
Oh, Lord, I wan' dig a little deeper in God's love
Dig a little deeper in God's love
Dig a little deeper in the store-house of His love, oh, Lord
Oh Lord, I wan' talk more like my Jesus would
Walk more like a Christian should

Dig a little deeper in the store-house of God's love
