Lyrics

Nearer, My God, To Thee
Lyricist: Sarah Flower Adams
Composer: Tara Buzash adapted from music by Lowell Mason

Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee,
E’en though it be a cross
That raiseth me;
Still all my song shall be,

Refrain:
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer 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

Refrain

There let the way appear,
Steps unto heaven;
All that Thou sendest me,
In mercy given;
Angels to beckon me

Refrain

Then, with my waking thoughts
Bright with Thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs
Bethel I’ll raise;
So by my woes to be

Refrain

Or if on joyful wing
Cleaving the sky,
Sun, moon, and stars forgot,
Upward I fly,
Still all my song shall be,

Refrain
