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 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.

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.

God helps to see at last and gives us the grace to following You Lord.

I shade tear any time I sing this song, it reminds me of my unworthiness to live but His grace kept me despite the shortcomings.
