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.

Close to me dear Lord

Our loving father never has faltered in his promises towards us, all he demands is a walk with him...

He is our compass, Our ever present help in time of trouble, he loves his own...

May we receive the grace to walk closely with him, despite our distractions and vain worldly pursuits.

This Hymn is incredibly uplifting. Please if you know of any other gospel Hymn that matches it pass it on to me, please.

Thank you.

Obviously this hymn stirs up the Divine treasure that lyes dormant in all being. The experience it invokes, rather the emotion it arouses in all who sang or listened to it confirms the statement by Anthony De Mello, that everything the universe is made of is contained in a single fly. Thou my everlasting portion.

This hymn this morning reminded my that by strength shall no man prevail. It's all by His mercy that we are still in the Faith.

I feels touched really when listening to this song. There is no any other person that we should be close to, apart from God. How I wish to be you to update more songs.

Bedrock of hope, indeed God is my everlasting portion. May I be close to Him all my days.
