Thou My Everlasting Portion

Lyrics ~ Fanny J. Crosby, 1820-1884

Music ~ Silas J. Vail, 1818-1884



Stanza 1:

Thou my everlasting portion,

More than friend or life to me,

All along my pilgrim journey,

Savior, let me walk with Thee.



Chorus:

Close to thee, close to Thee,

Close to thee, close to Thee,

All along my pilgrim journey,

Savior, let me walk with Thee.



Stanza 2:

Not for ease or worldly pleasure,

Nor for fame my pray'r shall be;

Gladly will I toil and suffer,

Only let me walk with Thee.



(Chorus)



Stanza 3:

Lead me through the vale of shadows,

Bear me o'er life's fitful sea;

Then the gate of life eternal

May I enter, Lord, with Thee.



(Chorus)
