Nearer, my God, to Thee

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 a wanderer,
  The sun gone down,
Darkness comes over me,
  My rest a stone;
Yet in my dreams I'd be
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
  Nearer to Thee.
There let me see the sight,
  An open heaven;
All that Thou sendest me,
  In mercy given;
Angels to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
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, my God, to Thee,
  Nearer to Thee.

Choosing to be nearer to God is the greatest decision I always make. I want to be nearer to Him with each passing day and this song serves as an ice-breaker. God is near us than we can ever imagine. Thanks for posting this song and thanks to the brother that remembered the 5th stanza and corrected the 1st 2 lines of the 3rd stanza. I hope these can be incorporated on this web page. God bless!

Glory be to God!

I love you guys, I appreciate you... for posting this hymnal along with the lyrics (notes/etc) and the piano/guitar were great accompaniment. Since my guitar was in bad shape. I miss it....

Thank you so much! May God bless you in return! Love, Grace

P.S. My friends were afraid to sing this song because they said that its a death/funeral song. But not so for us true believers in Christ, Philippians 1:21 For me to live is Christ and to die is gain. HalleluYAH!
