Representative Text

1 Walking close to Jesus,
Feeding on His word,
Active in His service,
I His voice have heard;
Mine His peace and blessing,
Sheltered in His love,
Walking with my Savior,
T’ward the home above.

Refrain:
Close, to my Savior,
Strong in His love,
Nearer to the mansions,
To the home that waits above.

2 Sometimes ‘mid the shadows
Doth He lead me on,
But with Him beside me,
Ev’ry fear is gone;
Clinging still more closely
To His nail-pierced hand,
Jesus leads me onward
To Immanuel’s land. [Refrain]

3 Walking close to Jesus,
‘Mid the storm or sun,
I am His forever,
Till life’s toil is done;
In His name I’ll labor,
Labor as I wait,
Till with joy I enter
Heaven’s pearly gate. [Refrain]
