Just a Closer Walk With Thee
Just a closer walk with Thee,
Grant it, Jesus, is my plea,
Daily walking close to Thee,
Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.
I am weak, but Thou art strong;
Jesus, keep me from all wrong;
I’ll be satisfied as long
As I walk, let me walk close to Thee. (Refrain)
When my feeble life is o’er,
Time for me will be no more;
Guide me gently, safely o’er
To Thy kingdom shore, to Thy shore. (Refrain)
Through this world of toil and snares,
If I falter, Lord, who cares?
Who with me my burden shares?
None but Thee, dear Lord, none but Thee.

1. As the song plays the first time, (During Verse 1)
make remarks about making every effort to walk
with the Lord in our daily work and activities. Emphasize that whether the walk with the Lord has just begun, or there are
more years behind than in front, Jesus is the friend who sticks closer than a brother.
2. As the song continues, (During Verses 2 - 3)
read Ephesians 2: 1- 14 (slowly). Let the song end.
3. When the song restarts, sing Verses 1-3 together.
4. Prayer and Meditation.
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
