Just a Closer Walk with Thee


Reflection:

The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. -- Psalm 34:18

Hymn for today:  Just A Closer Walk With Thee

(Author Unknown)
Just a closer walk with Thee,
Grant it, Jesus, if you please,
Daily walking close to Thee,
Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.


I am weak, but Thou art strong;
Jesus, keep me from all wrong;
I’ll be satisfied as long
As I walk, let me walk close to Thee.


Through this world of toil and snares,
If I falter, Lord, who cares?
Who with me my burden shares?
None but Thee, dear Lord, none but Thee.

Just a closer walk with Thee,
Grant it, Jesus, is my plea,
Daily walking close to Thee,
Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.

When my feeble life is o’er,
Time for me will be no more;
Guide me gently, safely o’er
To Thy kingdom shore, to Thy shore.

From one of my old notebooks with list of hymns. It's interesting to note:  I have various hymnbooks way back a copy of a worn out red-bound The Hymnal for Youth I dearly love, to my latest acquired hymnbook, Then Sings my Soul, but I can't seem to find lyrics of this hymn anywhere.
