Hymn of the Week – Thou, My Everlasting Portion

Poetry by Fanny J. Crosby (1874)
Music by S. J. Vail (1874)

Thou, my everlasting portion,
More than friend or life to me;
All along my pilgrim journey,
Savior, let me walk with Thee.
Close to Thee, close to Thee,
Close to Thee, close to thee!
All along my pilgrim journey,
Savior, let me walk with Thee.

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.
Close to Thee, close to Thee,
Close to Thee, close to thee!
Then the gate of life eternal
May I enter, Lord, with Thee.
