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.
