​Closer to Jesus

This song is by Don Francisco and appears on the album Brother of the Son (1976).

Well, a woman with a burden of sickness twelve years
Heard that Jesus was coming her way;
She didn't stop to worry 'bout her doubts and her fears
She had to fight for every step of the way
Through the crowds that were pressing around Him
Through the heat and the dust of the road,
And when she touched his cloak, God healed her body
He lifted her heavy load

If I can get a little closer to Jesus
Just a little bit closer to Jesus
Just a little bit closer to Jesus
Everything's gonna be all right

Now a man asked Jesus' disciples
If they could deliver his only son
From a spirit that threw him into water and fire
But with them it just could not be done
So he called out to Jesus saying "Lord I believe
Help me in my unbelief!"
Jesus had mercy, He healed his son
He took away all of his grief

If I can get a little closer to Jesus
Just a little bit closer to Jesus
Just a little bit closer to Jesus
Everything's gonna be all right

Now the story 'bout touching the hem of His garment
Nearly everybody knows
But that woman was healed by her faith in God
And not by Jesus's clothes
And the boy with the unclean spirit was delivered
When everybody's faith was gone
When his father cried out, saying "Lord I'm weak!"
And Jesus made his weakness strong!

If I can get a little closer to Jesus
Just a little bit closer to Jesus
Just a little bit closer to Jesus
Everything's gonna be all right

Now if you want to get a little closer to Jesus
There's nobody to stand in your way
You don't have to wait for another disciple
To find the right words to say
'Cause He is the same, today and forever
No matter what the Devil may do
And if you need a little faith or some more of God's Spirit
Just ask Him and He'll give it to you

And you can get a little closer to Jesus
Just as close as you want to to Jesus
Get a whole lot closer to Jesus
Everything's gonna be all right
And you can get a little closer to Jesus
Just as close as you want to to Jesus
Get a whole lot closer to Jesus
Everything's gonna be all right
