Song Description

Prayer to be closer to God

Lyrics

(I have one ambition in my life,
--one obsesive, consuming desire,
Beyond all this worldly gain and strife,
Beyond--to a place so much higher,
Temporal status, I do not seek,
For first is to be last, I believe,
The only position from You, I beseech,
Is the position much closer to Thee)

Closer to Thee, my Lord, closer to Thee,
May every thought I have reflect Your will to me,
With every word I say
--will that my tongue not stray
--voice my want to obey
--and be much closer to Thee,

May my prayers to You
--be honest and true,
Let my thanks bring You pure felicity,
Let my praise increase--
--my "amens" never cease,
And so, bring me that much closer to Thee,

Closer to Thee, my Lord, closer to Thee,
Let every step I tread model what Yours would be,
Let every road I take
--and every turn I make
--raise me up to a state
--that is much closer to Thee,

May my life reflect
--this style I elect,
May my passing days show how You dwell in me,
Let not my meekness
--be thought of as weakness,
But, boldly displayed as I follow Thee,

Closer to Thee, my Lord, closer to Thee,
This is my plea to You, Lord Jesus, now believe,
Help me to keep Your pace
--'till I have won the race
--and I am face to face
--with You, and closer we'll be,
