Nearer My God to Thee Lyrics

by Anne Murray

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
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'll be, nearer my God to Thee
Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee

Or if on joyful wing, cleaving the sky
Sun, moon, and stars forgot, upward I fly

Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee
Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee
