Hymn 34.

6s & 4s.

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 come 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 my way appear

Steps unto heav’n;

All that thou sendest me

In mercy giv’n;

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

Bethels I’ll raise;

So by my woes to be

Nearer, my God, to Thee,

Nearer, my God, to Thee,

Nearer to Thee!

And when 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.
