One step closer,
nothing to prove,
one step closer,
to you, Lord.
One step farther,
away from this world,
one step further,
towards you, Lord.
I’ve done what they wanted,
and what they required,
from all that I’m totally through.
Now Lord, I’m coming to you.
Oh, your night smells so sweet,
though my days were well spent,
but its time now to put up my feet—
towards heaven I’m totally bent.
I’m happy to shed all the things I have gathered,
so happy to give them all up,
the duties and all of the ways I have labored,
all fade as You gather me up.
Gather me up Lord, yes please, gather me up,
I’ve nothing to prove here, its true.
Everything vanishes from view,
Each step, I take closer to You.
