O For a Closer Walk


O for a closer walk with God
A calm and heavenly frame
A light to shine upon the road
Leading to the Lamb

Where is the blessedness I knew
When once I saw the Lord
Where is the soul refreshing view
Living in His Word

O fire of God come burn in me
Renew a holy passion
Til Christ my deepest longing be
My never-failing fountain
My never-failing fountain

A light to be my guide
The Father’s presence at my side
In Your will my rest I find
O for a closer walk with God - leading to the Lamb

So shall my walk be close with God
With all the hopes made new
So purer light shall mark the road
Leading to the Lamb
