Nearer, my God


    • Nearer, my God, to thee, 
    • Nearer to Thee: 
    • E'en though it be a cross 
    • That raiseth me, 
    • Still all my song would be, 
    • Nearer, my God, to Thee, 
    • Nearer to Thee, nearer to Thee. 

    • Though, like the wanderer, 
    • The sun gone down, 
    • Darkness be over me, 
    • My rest a stone, 
    • Yet in my dreams I'd be 
    • Nearer, my God, to Thee, 
    • Nearer to Thee, nearer to Thee. 

    • There let the way appear, 
    • Steps up to heaven; 
    • All that Thou sendest me, 
    • In mercy given; 
    • Angels to beckon me 
    • Nearer, my God, to Thee, 
    • Nearer to Thee, nearer to Thee. 

    • Then, with my waking thoughts 
    • Bright with Thy praise, 
    • Out of my stony griefs 
    • Bethel I'll raise; 
    • So by my woes to be 
    • Nearer, my God, to Thee, 
    • Nearer to Thee, nearer to Thee. 

    • Or, if on joyful wing 
    • Cleaving the sky, 
    • Sun, moon, and stars forgot, 
    • Upwards I fly, 
    • Still all my song shall be, 
    • Nearer, my God, to Thee, 
    • Nearer to Thee, nearer to Thee.
