Story behind the song
It could be the author is unknown, by his or her own choice. I believe the song is the author's own prayer put to music. The author wants others to have the desire for a closer walk with Jesus as the author does. The "Religious Activity" and the idea of "Look here what I'm doing for God" motivation, has to be let go of. I think the "Living Bible" says it best. Jesus Speaking " And now about prayer. When you pray, don't be like the hypocrites who pretend piety by praying publicly on the street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them. Truly, that is all the reward they will ever get. But when you pray, go away by yourself, all alone, and shut the door behind you and pray to your Father secretly, and your Father, who knows your secrets, will reward you." Matthew 6:5-6 I believe the song is the author's secret prayer, given to God, and for our benefit, without a single thought to earthly reward. That "Closer Walk" might very well be the reward.
