nearer my

God

to thee

 
 
 
 
 
NEARER, MY GOD, TO THEE
 
 
NEARER TO THEE.
 
 
E'EN THOUGH IT BE A CROSS
 
 
THAT RAISETH ME.
 
 
STILL ALL MY SONG SHALL BE,
NEARER, MY GOD, TO THEE,
 
 
NEARER TO THEE.
 
 
 
THOUGH, LIKE A WANDERER,
 
 
THE SUN GONE DOWN,
 
 
DARKNESS COMES OVER ME,
 
 
MY REST A STONE:
 
 
YET IN MY DREAMS I'D BE
NEARER, MY GOD, TO THEE,
 
 
NEARER TO THEE.
 
 
 
THERE LET MY WAY APPEAR
 
 
STEPS UNTO HEAVEN,
 
 
ALL THAT THOU SENDEST ME
 
 
IN MERCY GIVEN:
 
 
ANGELS TO BECKON ME
NEARER, MY GOD, 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.
