Lyrics

 Nearer,my God to thee, nearer to thee<br />
Even though it be across that raiseth me <br />
Still all my song shall be, nearer my God to thee<br />
Nearer my God to thee, nearer to thee;<br />
<br />
Though like a wanderer, the sun gone down<br />
darkness be over me, my rest a stone;<br />
yet in my dreams i'd be nearer my God to thee<br />
Nearer my God to thee, nearer to thee.<br />
<br />
There let the way appear, steps un-to heaven;<br />
all that thou send -est me, in mercy given.<br />
angels to back on me, nearer my God to thee<br />
Nearer my God to thee, nearer to thee.<br />
<br />
Then, with my waking thoughts bright with thy praise,<br />
out of my stony griefs Bethel I' ll raise;<br />
so by my woes to be nearer, my God to thee,<br />
Nearer my God to thee, nearer to thee<br />
<br />
Or if, on joyful wing cleaving the sky,<br />
sun, moon and stars forgot, upward i fly<br />
still all my song shall be, nearer my God to thee,<br />
Nearer my God to thee, nearer to thee.
