Nearer my God to Thee Lyrics

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

 

     Chorus:

     Nearer, my God, 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

 

There let the way appear,

     steps unto Heav’n;
     All that Thou sendest me,

     in mercy given;
     Angels to beckon me

     Nearer, my God, 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

 

Or, if on joyful wing cleaving the sky,
Sun, moon, and stars forgot,

     upward I’ll fly,
     Still all my song shall be,

     Nearer, my God, to Thee
