Lyrics to A Closer Walk

Posted on July 22, 2016 with 0 comments

Wade in the Water

Wade in the water

Wade in the water children

Wade in the water

God’s gonna trouble the water

 

Who’s that young girl dressed in red

Wade in the water

Must be the children that Moses led

God’s gonna trouble the water

 

Who’s that young girl dressed in white…

Must be the children of the Israelite…

 

Who’s that young girl dressed in blue…

Must be the children that’s coming through…

 

I Can’t Even Walk/Precious Lord

Colbert Croft and Joyce Croft/Thomas A Dorsey)

 

I thought that number one

Would surely be me

I thought that I could be

What I wanted to be

I thought that I could build

On life’s sinking sand

But I can’t even walk

Without you holding my hand

 

I can’t even walk without

You holding my hand

The mountain’s too high

And the valley’s too wide

Down on my knees

I learned to stand

And I can’t even walk

Without you holding my hand

 

I thought I had done

A lot on my own

I thought I could make it

All alone

I thought of myself

Woa as a mighty woman

But I can’t even walk

Without you holding my hand

 

Through the storm

Through the night

Lead me on to the light

Take my hand precious Lord

Lead me home

Cause I can’t even walk

Without you holding my hand

 

Little Lamb

(Libby Thomas)

 

Mary had a little Lamb

His life was pure as snow

And everywhere that Mary went

Her little Lamb did follow

She knew He was God’s only son

And for her sins He would pay

And as she looked toward heaven

With tears in her eyes

This was all she could say

 

Oh little Lamb

May I be like you

Following your Shepherd

Faithful strong and true

Oh little Lamb

My heart’s an open door

To live within your footprints

And love you even more

 

Mary’s little Lamb was slain

Our lives now pure as snow

And everywhere that He will lead

My heart is going to follow

He came to heal my brokenness

He makes my life no longer hollow

And as I look toward heaven

With a tear in my eye

This shall be my heart’s cry

 

And anywhere that He will lead

My heart is going to follow

Because this lamb became my King

 

Old Friends

(Gloria Gaither, William J. Gaither and J.D. Miller)

 

Old friends

After all of these years

Old friends

Through the laughter and tears

Old friends

What a find, what a priceless treasure

 

Old friends

Like a rare piece of gold

My old friends

Makes it good to grow old

Old friends

Through it all I will hold to old friends

 

Oh God must have known

That some days on our own

We would lose the will to go on

That’s why He sent friends like you

Along

 

Old friends

Yes you’ve always been there

Old friends

We’ve had more than our share

Old friends

I’m a rich millionaire

In old friends

 

I Know My God Cares for Me

(Ken Harnden and Andrew Martin)

 

I know my God cares for me

I know my God cares for me

He gives me strength

When it seems like hope is gone

He picks me up when I am down

Sets my feet on solid ground

I know that my God He cares for me

 

I woke up this morning

To go and face a new day

Don’t know where to begin

So many things to do

And I wouldn’t even try

To take the world on for one day

Without the love of my Lord

To see me through

 

Just take a look around

And see a world that’s going crazy

It seems true love is seldom found

And that no one seems to care

But there is one true love

That I can always count on

And there’d be no world for me

Without Him there

 

Oh Broken Heart

(Steven Darrell Medlock)

 

You gave your heart to someone

You’d spend forever with

That special one who filled

Your every dreams

But sometimes dreams

Don’t work out like

We thought they would

Now you’re alone

With painful memories

 

Oh broken heart

It’s time to let the Savior come

And heal the wounds

You’re hiding in your soul

Oh broken heart

Let Jesus pour the oil and wine

Give Him your pain

He’ll mend and make you whole

 

It’s always hard to say goodbye

To those we love

There’s no remorse

In death’s grim frigid hand

But there is peace

And comfort for

Your grieving heart

Let Jesus fill the void

You have within

 

Just a Closer Walk with Thee

(Public Domain)

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

 

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

 

When my feeble life is o’er

Time for me will be no more

Guide me gently safely o’er

To Thy kingdom shore

To Thy shore

 

The Rose

(Amanda McBroom)

 

Some say love it is a river
That drowns the tender reed
Some say love it is a razor
That leaves your soul to bleed
Some say love it is a hunger
An endless aching need
I say love it is a flower
And you its only seed

It's the heart afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance
It's the dream afraid of waking
That never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken
Who cannot seem to give
And the soul afraid of dyin'
That never learns to live

When the night has been too lonely
And the road has been too long
And you think that love is only
For the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snows
Lies the seed that with the sun's love
In the spring becomes the rose

 

(Add’l verse: Sherry Anne Lints)

He’s the Lily of the Valley

The bright and Morning Star

He’s the rose, The Rose of Sharon

Yes, to me, He is The Rose…

 

To Be Forgiven

(Michael Waddle)

 

Wish I could turn back time

Look back without regret

Walked with His hand in mine

The years before we met

But with that nail scarred hand

He wiped away my past

To be forgiven, I only had to ask

 

We can’t go back again

And change yesterday

Undo mistakes we’ve made

Take back the things we say

But mercy covers sin

It’s not too great a task

To be forgiven

You only have to ask

 

Sometimes it’s hard to see

I guess I’ll never know

The worth He found in me

Or why He loved me so

Yet when I called His name

I was set free at last

To be forgiven, I only had to ask

 

Singing this Song to You

(Sherry Anne Lints and Nick Bruno)

 

I searched a lifetime

For the right words to say

Just what you mean to me

So I’ll give you my heart

And all that I have

All that I am is Yours

 

‘Cause You are shelter

From the rain

You are healing for my pain

You make all things new

Like the morning dew

You are love that will not change

You are worthy of my praise

And Lord, I’m singing this song to You

 

I give you my life Lord

And all that I have

I’ll lay down my plans

Help me understand

That you are near to me

Even when I cannot see

Lord you are all to me

 

I’ve seen a lot of places

And I’ve done a lot of things

But I’ve never known a love

That could change everything

 

Blessed Be the Lord God of Israel

(Justin Peters and Twila McBride)

 

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel

In majesty He reigns

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel

Holy is His name

 

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord

Forever and ever

He is worshiped and adored

 

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel

Let every tongue proclaim

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel

Holy is your name

 

We sing holy, holy, holy are you Lord

Forever and ever

You are worshiped and adored

 

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel

Let every heart now sing

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel

Holy is your name

 

We sing holy, holy, holy are you Lord

Forever and ever

You are worshiped and adored
