Nearer My God To Thee - Lyrics

by I Salonisti

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

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
Nearer, my God, to thee
Nearer to thee

There let the way appear
Steps unto heav’n
All that thou sendest me
In mercy giv’n
Angels to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to thee
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, my God, to thee
Nearer to thee

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
