Birth: 1907
Death: Dec. 17, 1974

a worker at the Rockwell (Seaton) foundry, Cluke, an African American suffered discrimination, he put his feelings into a new song that is still known around the world, "Just a Closer Walk With Thee."

Just a closer walk with Thee,

Grant it, Jesus, is my plea,

Daily walking close to Thee,

Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.
I am weak, but Thou art strong,

Jesus, keep me from all wrong,

I'll be satisfied as long
 As I walk,
let me walk close to Thee.
Through this world of toil and snares,

If I falter, Lord, who cares?

Who with me my burden shares?

None but Thee, dear Lord, none but Thee.
When my feeble life is o'er,

Time for me will be no more,

Guide me gently, safely o'er

To Thy kingdom's shore, to Thy shore.
