VERSE 1

C                      Dm7 G7 
I am weak but Thou art strong;

                        C 
Jesus, keep me from all wrong.

        C7           F 
I'll be satisfied as long 

     C            G7            C 
As I walk, let me walk close to Thee.

C                       Dm7 G7 
Just a closer walk with Thee,

                       C 
Grant it, Jesus, is my plea;

      C7               F 
Daily walking close to Thee,

       C        G7           C 
Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.

VERSE 2

C                              Dm7 G7 
Through this world of toil and snares,

                       C 
If I falter, Lord, who cares?

         C7           F 
Who with me my burden shares?

         C          G7             C 
None but Thee, dear Lord, none but Thee.

C                       Dm7 G7 
Just a closer walk with Thee,

                       C 
Grant it, Jesus, is my plea;

      C7               F 
Daily walking close to Thee,

       C        G7           C 
Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.

VERSE 3

C                      Dm7 G7 
When my feeble life is o'er,

                       C 
Time for me will be no more;

         C7             F 
Guide me gently, safely o'er 

       C       G7            C 
To Thy kingdom shore, to Thy shore.

C                       Dm7 G7 
Just a closer walk with Thee,

                       C 
Grant it, Jesus, is my plea;

      C7               F 
Daily walking close to Thee,

       C        G7           C 
Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.
