“The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.” Psalm 145:18


Closer to You, Lord,

This I now pray,

May I be every moment

Of each passing day.


Your sweet voice I hear,

Your radiance I see,

Your presence I feel

In and around me.


So deep is Your love,

So warm Your embrace,

So beautiful Your blessings,

So glorious Your grace,


Precious Your path,

Wonderful Your way,

Timeless Your treasures,

Every Word You say.


So take my hand,

Bring me closer to You;

Allow me to walk

Your path precious and true.


And like You, my Jesus,

May I be ever more;

I desire to be

Like the One I adore.


Through my eyes

Let Your eternal light shine;

Through my lips

Speak Your words divine.


Upon Your pathway

Guide always my feet;

Your love let sing

In my every heart beat.


Closer to You,

For this, Lord, I do long;

Take me in Your arms

Eternal and strong.


My soul is Yours,

With it Your Spirit fill;

I live to bring You glory,

To do Your perfect will.


Closer to You, Lord,

What sweeter thing could be?

May I be closer now

And for all eternity.


Yea, stay nigh unto me

Every moment, every day –

Ever closer to You, Lord,

This I now pray.
