Close to Thee

Words: Fanny Crosby, 1874

Music: Silas Jones Vail, 1874

 

25 Whom have I in heaven but you?
    I desire you more than anything on earth.
26 My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak,
    but God remains the strength of my heart;
    he is mine forever.

27 Those who desert him will perish,
    for you destroy those who abandon you.
28 But as for me, how good it is to be near God!
    I have made the Sovereign Lord my shelter,
    and I will tell everyone about the wonderful things you do.

Psalm 73:25-28 (NLT)

 

Prayer: Father, I long to have a closer walk with You. You are more important than anything else in my life. Help me remove idols and sin. Speak to me, and refresh me today. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Thou my everlasting portion,
More than friend or life to me.
All along my pilgrim journey,
Savior, let me walk with thee.

 

Close to thee, Close to thee, 
Close to thee, Close to thee; 
All along my pilgrim journey, 
Savior, let me walk with thee. 

 

Not for ease or worldly pleasure, 
Nor for fame my prayer shall be: 
Gladly will I toil and suffer, 
Only let me walk with thee.

 

Lead me through the vale of shadows, 
Bear me o'er life's fitful sea; 
Then the gate of life eternal 
May I enter, Lord, with thee.
