Words:

 

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.
X
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.
X
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.
X
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.
