CLOSER I COME TO THEE

Closer I come to thee as we walk hand-in-hand
As we walk together through this beack of sand
I put my arm about your shoulders
Just the way I used to hold her so long ago

Closer I come to thee as we walk side-by-side
As we walk together; with me you will abide
I can't get o'er thy loveliness
And now I know that I must press you close to me

Closer I come to thee as we walk in the rain
As we walk together; this love is not in vain
Before me thy face I behold
I'll protect you from the cold of the night

Closer I come to thee as we walk in the night
As we walk together; yes, I hold you tight
For you say that I love you
I know that I can't set you free because I love you

Closer I come to thee as we walk in our dreams
As we walk together, all is not it seems
For you it is that I do cherish
And this love shall never perish because you love me

Closer I come to thee as we walk to the west
As we walk together, my heart beasts in my breast
And I think of you always
I know you'll be mine today and forever
