1 Close to Thee, O lamb of God,
May Thy spirit hold me;
‘Neath Thy all protecting wings,
Let Thy mercy fold me.

Refrain:
Close to Thee, close to Thee,
Keep Thy Child forever,
Anchored firmly on the Rock,
Sin can harm me never.

2 Close to Thee, when weak and faint,
Duty’s path pursuing,
Let me feel Thy circling arm,
All my strength renewing. [Refrain]

3 Close to Thee, O Lamb of God,
Near Thy cross abiding;
I can brave the tempest shower,
In Thy love confiding. [Refrain]

4 Close to Thee, when earthly ties,
One by one are breaking;
When my soul to life anew,
Glad and pure is waking. [Refrain]

5 Close to Thee amid the throng,
By life’s crystal river;
Close to Thee shall be my song
In the bright forever. [Refrain]
