“The Gaither Vocal Band is an American southern gospel vocal group, named after its founder and leader Bill Gaither. Founded in the early ’80s, Gaither Vocal Band is one of America’s leading faith-based vocal groups. While Gaither remained the only original member of the ensemble, many well-regarded CCM/gospel singers have passed through the band’s ranks, including Russ Taff, Guy Penrod, Wes Hampton, Michael English, Mark Lowry, and David Phelps. On March 1, 2017, it was announced that the Gaither Vocal Band lineup consisted of Reggie Smith, Wes Hampton, Adam Crabb, Todd Suttles, and Bill Gaither. Although the group started out recording contemporary Christian music in the 1980s, it became known for southern gospel after the popularity of the Gaither Homecoming videos.” (Source: Wikipedia)

Gaither Vocal Band – Close To Thee

Close To Thee Lyrics

Gaither Vocal Band, Angela Y. Primm

Thou my everlasting portion
More than friend or life to me
All alone my pilgrim journey
Saviour let me walk with Thee

Close to Thee, close to Thee
Close to Thee, close to Thee
All alone my pilgrim journey
Saviour let me walk with Thee

Not for easy wordly pleasure
Nor for fame my prayer shall be
Gladly will I toil and suffer
Only let me walk with Thee

Close to Thee, close to Thee
Close to Thee, close to Thee
Gladly will I toil and suffer
Only let me walk with Thee

Lead me through the veil of shadows
Bear me o’er life’s fitful sea
Then the gate of life eternal
May I enter Lord with Thee

Close to Thee, close to Thee
Close to Thee, close to Thee
Then the gate of life eternal
May I enter Lord with Thee
Then the gate of life eternal
May I enter Lord with Thee

  1. Truly the Holy Spirit is in the Hearts and Faces of all the members of the Gaither Group. Since many members have gone on to heaven, I would like to see a date on the bottom giving the date the original taping was made. (of all tapes)
