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 a stone,
Yet in my dreams I’d be
|:Nearer, my God, to Thee,:|
Nearer to Thee.


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


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,:|
Nearer to Thee.


---Alternative verses---


Though like a wanderer—
Daylight all gone,
Darkness be over me,
My rest a stone;
Yet in my dreams I’d be
|: Nearer, my God, to thee— :|
Nearer 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—
Nearer to thee!
