Thou my everlasting Portion

1
Thou my everlasting Portion,
More than friend or life to me,
All along my pilgrim journey,
Savior, let me walk with Thee.
  Close to Thee, close to Thee,
Close to Thee, close to Thee;
All along my pilgrim journey,
  Savior, let me walk with Thee.
2
Not for ease or worldly pleasure,
Not 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.
3
Lead me through the vale 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.

I have sung this Hymn in church for as long as I can remember but this week we are starting a 4 day revival with speaker Rev. Levi Parish. We will use this hymn as a call to revival each night. The hymn is already blessing my heart.

I sing this hymn more than any other hymns. It is echoed daily in my heart, as I wake up daily. I beg of God to draw me closer, daily to Him as I am inspired to be closer than ever till our Saviour's return.

I always feel lifted and strengthened whenever I listen or sing this song knowing assuredly that whatever is my portion in this life means nothing to me as long as God is my everlasting portion who is closer to me more than friend or life itself. Hallelluyah! What a glorious hope we have through our Lord Jesus Christ.

My mum loved hymns so much! But she is singing forever more in God's presence now...

I was thinking of her and missing her when I decided to google search her, and found that she came to this site. Wasn't surprised that it was a hymn site. But what more, it was comforting and somewhat bitter-sweet to see this was the hymn she listened to.

Indeed, God was her everlasting Portion, and more than friend or life to her. And along her pilgrim journey, Jesus our Savior, walked with her...

Hallelujah for such hope in eternal life. Miss you so much Mum... You are among the cloud of witnesses now... I long to be with Jesus, my Savior and you too, when the time comes...
