Eddy Arnold – Close To Thee lyrics

(Fanny J.Crosby - Vall)

Thy my everlasting portion
More than friend or life to me
All alone my pilgrim journey
Saviour let me walk with Thee.

Close to Thee, close to Thee
Close to Thee, close to Thee
All alone my pilgrim journey
Saviour let me walk with Thee.

Not for easy wordly 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.

--- Instrumental ---

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...
