391. LET ME LIVE CLOSE TO THEE

 

In thy field I would wield
sickles brave and true
In the fight for the right
I would dare and do
Spend my days in thy praise
all the journey through
Let me live close to Thee each day

 

CHORUS

(Alto lead)

 

Let me live
Let me live
Close to Thee
Close to Thee
Take my hand
Guide
dear Lord, and guide me
me all
all along the rugged way
along the way

 

O let me live
Let me live
Close to Thee
Close to Thee

 

Let me walk and talk with Thee
Let me walk
dear Lord, each day
close to Thee each day

 

VERSE 2

Not the crown nor renown
that the world might see
I would work, never shirk
blessed Lord, for Thee
But to know where I go
that my soul is free
Let me live close to Thee each day

 

VERSE 3

Help me bear and to share
some poor pilgrim's load
Be my friend to the end
of the toilsome road
I would sing to my king
in the soul's abode
Let me live close to Thee each day
