Seven Places - Closer To Thee Lyrics




[Verse 1:]
You're my everlasting portion
More than a friend, more than a brother
More than anything to me
And all along my journey
Give me the strength
Give me the love
To walk closer to thee
Lord be the strength
Lord be the love
That walks closer to me

[Chorus:]
You're my fearless leader
Gracious redeemer
Beautiful savior
Almighty king
You give a brand new start
Can heal any broken heart
Piece in Your presence
Get me closer to thee
Get me closer to thee

[Verse 2:]
Nor for ease or worldly pleasure
Nor for the fame
Not for the fortune
My prayer shall be
Gladly will I suffer
Just give me the strength
Give me the love
To walk closer to thee
Lord be the strength
Lord be the love
That walks closer to me

[Bridge:]
I sat alone in darkness with a troubled soul
You stood up in heaven ready to take control
Removing all the distance that was between You and me
Help me never to replace it and keep me closer to thee
Lead me though the vale of shadows
Lay me on Your shoulder then bear me over
Life's fitful sea
Then at the gate of life eternal
Show me the strength
Show me the love
That kept me closer to thee
Cause You are the strength
You are the love
That is closest to me
