O for a closer walk with God

O for a closer walk with God,
a constant, heavenly calm;
a light to shine upon the road
that leads me to the Lamb!

2. Where is the blessing that I knew
when first I saw the Lord?
Where is the soul-refreshing view
of Jesus and his word?

3. What peaceful hours I once enjoyed!
How sweet their memory still!
But they have left an aching void
the world can never fill.

4. The dearest idol I have known-
however much adored-
help me to tear it from your throne
and worship you as Lord.

5. So shall my walk be close with God,
my mind serene and calm;
so purer light shall mark the road
that leads me to the Lamb.
