Nearer, My God, to Thee

Album: The Power and the Glory (1841)
  • Nearer, my God, to thee
    Nearer to thee
    Even 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

    Though like the wanderer
    The sun gone down
    Darkness be over me
    My rest a stone

    Yet in my dreams I'll be
    Nearer, my God, to thee
    Nearer, my God, to thee
    Nearer to thee

    There let the way appear
    Steps unto 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
