Click to listen to the music of Nearer My God To Thee and sing along!

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.

Chorus:
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.

Chorus:
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer to Thee!

There let the way appear, steps unto Heav'n
All that Thou sendest me, in mercy given
Angels to beckon me nearer, my God, to Thee.

Chorus:
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.

Chorus:
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer to Thee!

Or, if on joyful wing cleaving the sky
Sun, moon, and stars forgot, upward I'll fly
Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee.

Chorus:
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer to Thee!

There in my Father's home, safe and at rest
There in my Savior's love, perfectly blest
Age after age to be, nearer my God to Thee.

Chorus:
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer to Thee!

The Gospel song, "Nearer My God To Thee" was written by Sarah Adams in 1841.
