Just a Closer Walk with 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
Through the world of toil and snare
If I fall, dear Lord, who cares?
Who with me my burden shares?
None but Thee, dear Lord, none but Thee
When my troubled life is o'er
Time for me will be no more
Then guide me gently, safely o'er
To Thy shore, dear Lord, to Thy shore
