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.

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.

I am constantly and daily brought to my consciousness by this heart-touching hymn.

This hymn daily reminds me that without Him, I am nothing and I can't accomplish anything. It teaches me that real life consists of daily walking close with Him. I sing this hymn every time weeping in His presence.

What a classical song! I have known from my youthful age as a choir member. And in my close to Jubilee year it still sounds to me as ever before. Passionately sung anytime I sing it then. I thank The Lord today. I felt same as ever before. Lord let me walk close to Thee until I finish my course here.
