O For a Closer Walk, C. V. Stanford
John Rutter conducts the Cambridge Singers as they sing O For a Closer Walk by Charles Villiers Stanford, with Wayne Marshall, organist.
O for a closer walk with God, A calm and heavenly frame, A light to shine upon the road That leads me to the Lamb!
Return, O holy Dove, return, Sweet messenger of rest! I hate the sins that made Thee mourn And drove Thee from my breast.
So shall my walk be close with God, Calm and serene my frame; So purer light shall mark the road
That leads me to the Lamb.
