Nearer My God To Thee

Nearer My God To Thee

Sarah. F. Adams

Verse 1
Nearer my God to thee nearer to thee
Even though a be a cross that raiseth me
Still ally sing shall be
Nearer, my God, to thee, Nearer to thee

 

Verse 2
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 to thee

Verse 3
There let the way appear, steps unto heaven
All that thou sendest me, in mercy given
Angels to beckon me
Nearer, my God, thee nearer to thee

 

Verse 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 to thee.

 

Verse 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 to thee
