One sweetly solemn thought Comes to me




One sweetly solemn thought
Comes to me oer and oer
Im nearer home today, today,
Than eer Ive been before.

Nearer my home,
Nearer my home,
Nearer my home today, today,
Than eer Ive been before.



Nearer my Fathers house,
Where many mansions be;
Nearer the great white throne today,
Nearer the crystal sea.

Nearer my home,
Nearer my home,
Nearer my home today, today,
Than eer Ive been before.



Nearer the bound of life,
Where burdens are laid down;
Nearer leaving the cross today,
Nearer gaining the crown.

Nearer my home,
Nearer my home,
Nearer my home today, today,
Than eer Ive been before.



Be near me when my feet
Are slipping oer the brink;
For I am nearer home today,
Nearer now than I think.

Nearer my home,
Nearer my home,
Nearer my home today, today,
Than eer Ive been before.
