Just A Closer Walk With Thee – Inspirational Singers
“Just A Closer Walk With Thee” has been recorded by many different artists through the years. A man named Morris heard a station porter singing at a train stop and the song made such an impression on him that he wrote down the words and music, with a few additions of his own, and published the song in 1940. It is unknown where the song actually originated from. Many feel it is was an African American spiritual that was compiled from various works and renditions. Notably, in 1885, Fanny Crosby wrote and published a song that displays some similarities in the chorus titled, “Closer Walk With Thee”. Despite speculation of its true beginnings, it is still one of the most beloved inspirational/gospel hymns today.
