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 learnt this song from my discipler during a discipleship class in Saki (Bro Bodunrin). Ever since, it has been a song that always retreat me anytime I feel lowly in heart with much worries. This song is highly backed by the divine power of the most High God. Glory to God.

This song has always been close to me. Through all the ups and down of life it's only my Lord that has been my everlasting portion and He's the only one who will be with us all through our life.

He walks with us and I want to remain close to Him so that I don't wander or fall.

I knew this song when my friend and I got newly baptized on a conference. When first saw it the following morning after our baptism, we wept for Joy Unspeakable and and full of Glory, passion burnning within as we sang, looking over the horizon seen God's creation. It became one of my favourites till now, Praise Him, Amen 😀
