Here is a wonderful family performance of the song.


I want to walk and talk to Jesus each and every day
I want my life to be an example in each and every way
I want to treat my brothers and sisters the way that he taught me to
Because He said do unto others as you would have them do to you
I want Him to shower me with His blessings from up above
and rock me, rock me, rock me, in the cradle of His love.
I want Him to lead me and guide me in everything I say and do
In His service I want Him to choose me and use me I do don’t you
What a wonderful mighty counselor, prince of peace is he.
And all I want each day is just a closer walk with thee
Cause, I love Him, I love Him, I love him, and I know he loves me.
