Lord I Am Pleading Hear Thou My Prayer


Lord, I am pleading; hear Thou my prayer.
Let me Thy blessed fellowship share.
From day to day Thy servant I’d be.
Grant me a closer walk with Thee.

Refrain
Oh, for a closer walk with Thee!
Near to Thy side I ever would be.Shield me and hide me;
Constantly guide me
Into a closer walk with Thee.

Voices of earth unnumbered I hear;
Cares and perplexing problems are near.
Trusting in Thee, my soul shall be free.
Grant me a closer walk with Thee.[Refrain]

Strong are the foes that conquer I must.
Long is the way, but in Thee I trust.
In my own strength but weakness I see.
Grant me a closer walk with Thee.[Refrain]

Glorious Master, king of my soul,
On Thee my burdens gladly I roll.
Thou art my portion eternally.
Grant me a closer walk with Thee.[Refrain]
