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?
