And, as in uffish thought he stood,... Read More

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. Traditional, from “Just... Read More
