Nearer My God to Thee

Misc. Gospel

 GD7EmC
  Nearer my  God to Thee,
 GD
  Nearer to  Thee!
 GD7EmC
  E'en  tho'  it  be a cross,
 GD7G
  That  raiseth  me;
 G
  Still all my song shall be,
 CGD7
Nearer  my God, to  Thee,
 GD7EmC
  Nearer  my  God, to Thee,
 GD7G
  Nearer to  Thee.

Tho' like a 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 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 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.

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 my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee.
