Nearer my God to Thee

Written by: Sarah Fuller Flower Adams | Biography
 | Quotes (1) |
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
   Nearer to Thee!
E'en though it be a cross
   That raiseth me;
Still all my song would be,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
   Nearer to Thee!

Though like the wanderer,
   The sun gone down,
Darkness be over me,
   My rest alone.
Yet in my dreams I'd be
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 to Thee!

   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!

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