  1. I would be closer, my Savior,
    Yes, closer to Thee each day,
    Filled with Thy Spirit and power,
    And walking the holy way.
    • Refrain:
      I would be closer to Thee,
      I would be closer to Thee;
      Closer each day, my heart doth say,
      Closer, my Lord, to Thee.
  2. I would be closer for shelter,
    Just leaning upon Thy breast,
    Trusting my all on the altar,
    Thou givest me sweeter rest.
  3. I would be closer for guidance,
    Oh, let me not go astray,
    Feeling the blessed assurance
    That brightens my hope each day.
  4. Closer to Jesus my helper,
    His merits I humbly plead,
    Drawing from heaven my treasure,
    The grace I shall daily need.
