Song lyrics to Just a Closer Walk with Thee
Just a Closer Walk with Thee is a traditional gospel song that has been performed and recorded by many artists. The title and lyrics of the song refer to the Biblical passage from 2 Corinthians 5:7 which states, “We walk by faith, not by sight” and James 4:8, “Come near to God and he will come near to you.”
Just a closer walk with Thee
Grant it, Lord, if you please
Daily walking close with Thee
Let it be, dear Lord; Lord, let it be
I am weak, but Thou are strong
Jesus, keep me from all wrong
I’ll be satisfied as long
As I can walk, dear Lord, close with Thee
In this world of toil and snares
If I falter, Lord, who cares?
Who but Thee my burden shares?
None but Thee, oh Lord, none but Thee
When my weary life is over
Pain and suffering are no more
Who will lead me safely o’er
Canaan’s shore, that sweet Canaan’s shore?
