Nearer My God to Thee  Misc. Gospel

[G] Near[D7]er [Em]my [C] God to Thee,
[G] Nearer to [D] Thee!
[G] E'en [D7] tho' [Em] it [C] be a cross,
[G] That [D7] raiseth [G] me;
[G] Still all my song shall be,
Near[C]er [G] my God, to [D7] Thee,
[G] Near[D7]er [Em] my [C] God, to Thee,
[G] Near[D7]er to [G] 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.
