CLOSING SONGS

Just A Closer Walk With Thee

I am weak, but Thou art strong;

Jesus, keep me from all wrong;

Iíll be satisfied as long

As I walk, let me walk close to Thee.

 

Refrain:

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.

 

Throí this world of toils and snares,

If I falter, Lord, who cares?

Who with me by burden shares?

None but Thee, dear Lord, none but Thee.

Repeat Refrain

 

When my feeble life is oíer,

Time for me will be no more;

Guide me gently, safely oíer

To Thy kingdom shore, to Thy shore

Repeat Refrain

 

Stand Up Stand Up for Jesus (verse 1)

Onward Christian Soldiers (verse 1)
