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 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 😀

"More than friend or life to me, All along my pilgrim journey," is Jesus with Whom I have been united through His loving sacrifice. How great and unfathomable a love. I long to walk close to Him always.

I slept with burdens of life challenges and I woke with this song *Thou art my everlasting portion". I learnt this song in my early Christian life at Christ Gospel mission church, akinsola Cresent Mushin. I searched via google and got it. It ministered to my spirit that not for ease of wordly pleasure, and fame will my prayer be but to be closely work with the Lord.

As I prepared my message for God's people this morning, the Lord stirred this hymn in my heart, checked on Google & I was greatly inspired.

I also discovered it was composed by the great woman Fanny Cosby.

Truly Lord Thou art my everlasting portion, nothing else, You are all I have got.

The Holy Spirit dropped this song in my heart this morning so I quickly searched google and found it on this site. As I sing, it puts eternity in my focus, the beautiful mansions beyond the blue. Glory! Haleluyah!

It was the most wonderful day of my life when I first heard this song at my friend's place at Ibadan, it was inspiring to me, and I had a soul lifting moment, I got lifted in my spirit that I started shedding tears, ever since then, this song has become a favourite that I can't do without, in fact I sought for the lyrics on google and still searching for where to pick its CD, thank God for the life of the composer, I'm indeed blessed having this song in my memory...........

After being alone with God yesterday, this was the song that came to my spirit this morning so I sang it. It's my regular companion when I want to commune with Him even when I'm in the car and each time I play it, I feel His presence more. It inspires me and helps me to remember that Christ lives in me and this is the only hope of glory. It's an encouragement for a more intimate relationship with the Lord.
