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
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
Shall be no more
Guide me gently safely
O'er to Thy kingdom
Shores to Thy shores
Just a closer walk

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
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
Shall be no more
Guide me gently safely
O'er to Thy kingdom
Shores to Thy shores
Just a closer walk

    It means that within my daily walk with the lord, and with him holding my hand and guiding me in all directions of life; where i shall exist within his divine will every day, and where he is requiring me to be holy, i will for certainly reach my goal; that is to live on forever with him, once i appear in his holy presence. For you see precious hearts, i can't make this journey along, but through jesus as my advocate with the father, i will most assuredly make it home safely. Each day, i am living for the day that i shall see god face to face; and with all of my fallacies, frailties in life, and weaknesses, as god walks with me and guide or order my footsteps, i will not faint in this present life; he will make heaven my eternal home. This is my favorite song, and when the time comes for me to leave this world, i have asked the saints and my family to have this be the song to be sang in my funeral. I am most assuredly living for that day, every since i was 17 years old. Glory to god! Come on lord and guide me safely over to thy kingdom shore.
