I want to be closer.  Closer to your side

I want to be nearer.  Never let me hide

I want to be purer.  As I walk through life

I want to be yours.  In you I will abide


There is never a time you will leave my side

But I may wander away

When I do I can rest assured you abide

In my heart each and every day


You promised you’ll never leave or forsake me

Even if I should mess up

When I find myself far from where I should be

You come and fill my cup


When I cannot hide from the trials I face

I just want to walk away

But you come and guide me to a peaceful place

Where I can bow and pray


These are the reasons I trust in you

Every promise I know is true

You will be with me my whole life through

Jesus, my Lord
