Oh how well I do remember back to old camp meetin' times
I lingered in the shadows to hide this face of mine
I could barely hear the preacher barely hear the olders pray
Then one night I heard the still small voice say
Move up a little closer don't hide in shadows
Come now and be counted with the children of the Lord
Move up a little closer climb high up the mountain
Move up a little closer to the kingdom of the Lord
[ piano ]
I pretended not to listen tried to close my burning ears
Although I'd been a sinner who wasted many years
So I turned to leave the meetin' but somehow I couldn't start
Once more I heard the voice in my heart
Move up a little closer...
[ dobro ]
I'm so thnakful for the message that was sent to me that night
I dawned by Christian armor and I bowed to spread the lights
Now when I see you sinner standing in the shadows dim
I bow my head and say this praer for him
Move up a little closer...
