Close to thee x4
1. Thou my ever lasting portion, more than friend or life to me;
All along my pilgrim journey, savior let me walk with thee.
2. 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.
3. 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.
