Nearer My God, to Thee

473 – Nearer My God, to Thee

Major Key: F

1
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, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!

2
Though like the wanderer, Daylight all gone,
Darkness be over me, My rest a stone;
Yet in my dreams I’d be
Nearer, my God, to Thee;
Nearer, my God, to Thee, Nearer to Thee!

3
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, my God, to Thee, Nearer to Thee!

4
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, my God, to Thee, Nearer to Thee!

5
Or if, on joyful wing Cleaving the sky,
Sun, moon, and stars forgot, Upward I fly,
Still all my song shall be,
Nearer, my God, to Thee;
Nearer, my God, to Thee, Nearer to Thee!
