Just A Closer Walk With Thee

Lyrics: Traditional?
Music: Traditional?

Played by the Jerry Garcia Band with James Booker in 1976. Thanks to Matt Schofield for the lyrics.

Just a closer walk with Thee
Grant it, Jesus, if you please
I'll be satisfied all along
Just let me walk, as I walk close to Thee

I am weak, but Thou art strong
Jesus, keep me from all wrong
I'll be satisfied as long
Well as I walk, as I walk, let me walk, close to Thee

Well let me walk, Lord, let me walk, close to Thee

[Spoken]
We just thought we'd take a few seconds to let you
see where it all comes from, yes. How about a Amen
for San Francisco, with your hand...

[Sung]
... and stay close to Thee, Lord .... (note 1)

Just a closer walk with Thee
Grant it, Jesus, if you please
I'll be satisfied all along
Just let me walk, as I walk close to Thee
Notes
(1) in the rehreasal tape from 7 Jan 1976 from which Matt took the lyrics, the band segue into "Goodnight Irene" here, before returning to "Just A Closer Walk With Thee"
