Just a Closer Walk with Thee is a traditional gospel song.
Elvis never actually recorded the song in the studio. Elvis was home recorded at the Eddie Fadal's house on May 27, 1958, Waco, Texas. This performance was released officially for the first time on the Off Duty CD Set.
Just A Closer Walk With Thee
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.
Through this world of toil and snares,
If I falter, Lord, who cares?
Who with me my burden shares?
None but Thee, dear Lord, none but Thee.
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.
Recorded: 1954/09, first released on Elvis Presley
