Just a Closer Walk with Thee
Jimmie Rodgers Lyrics


Chorus: Just a closer walk with Thee,
Grant it, Jesus, is my plea,
Daily walking close to Thee,
Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.

V.1.
I am weak but Thou art strong.
Jesus, keep me from all wrong.
I'll be satisfied as long
As I walk, let me walk close to Thee.

V.2.
Thro' this world of toil and snares,
If I falter, Lord, who cares?
Who with me my burden shares?
None but Thee, dear Lord, none but Thee.

V.3.
When my feeble life is o'er,
Time for me will be no more.
Guide me gently, safely o'er
To they Kingdom's shore, to thy shore.

Never could get enough of Jimmie's music. He was very popular in Australia.

JIMMY WAS AND IS ONE OF THE BEST ALL TIME ROCK AND ROLL ERA SINGERS WHO SANG FOR THE LORD

Lloyd Marion

Thanks for posting this. I always loved Jimmie's voice and I still have about 20 of his single 45s and two LPs. Although I am not tremendously religious, I LOVE this rendition of this great hymn!

Not a buyer of records, BUT did buy this one, wore it out. Sprayed water on it to mute the hiss and crackle in later years. Fantastic singer, all from his heart.

Michael Walker

I first heard this song as a teenager and I still love it fifty years on. Jimmie Rodgers was very special.
