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!
There let the way appear steps unto heaven; All that thou sendest me in mercy given;
Angels to beckon me nearer, my God 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.
