Nearer My God, To Thee - Hymn Lyrics

Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!
E~ez_rsquo~en though it be a cross that raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee.

Refrain
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~ez_rsquo~d be nearer, my God to Thee.

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

Refrain
Then, with my waking thoughts bright with Thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs Bethel I~ez_rsquo~ll raise;
So by my woes to be nearer, my God, to Thee.

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

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

Refrain
