1 Would you in wisdom and righteousness grow,
Seeking the joys of the kingdom to know?
Follow your Master wherever you go,
Keep very close to your Saviour.

Refrain:
Keep very close,
To Jesus your Guide;
Under his wings of mercy abide,
Keep very close,
Whatever betide,
Close to the heart of your Saviour.

2 Would you be filled with the spirit of love
Would you be holy and pure as a dove?
Would you inherit the kingdom above?
Keep very close to your Saviour. [Refrain]

3 Would you abide in the mansion so fair,
Christ your Redeemer has gone to prepare?
Would you the crown of the gloried wear?
Keep very close to your Saviour. [Refrain]

4 Keep very close to the Saviour each day,
Lean on his promise, his teachings obey,
He is the Truth, and the Life, and the Way,
Keep very close to your Saviour. [Refrain]
