Thy my everlasting portion, more than friend or life to me,
All alone my pilgrim journey, Savior let me walk with Thee.
Close to Thee, close to Thee, close to Thee, close to Thee;
All alone my pilgrim journey, Savior let me walk with Thee.

Not for easy worldly pleasure, Nor for fame my prayer shall be,
Gladly will I toil and suffer, Only let me walk with Thee
Close to Thee, close to Thee, close to Thee, close to Thee;
Gladly will I toil and suffer, Only let me walk with Thee.
[ piano ]
Lead me through the veil of shadows, Bear me o'er life's fitful sea,
Then the gate of life eternal, May I enter Lord with Thee.
Close to Thee, close to Thee, close to Thee, close to Thee;
Then the gate of life eternal, May I enter Lord with Thee.
