466b. Nearer, my God, to thee

1 Nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!
E'en though it be a cross that raiseth me:
still all my song would be,
'Nearer, my God, to thee,
nearer to thee, nearer to thee.'

2 Though like the 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 to thee, nearer to thee.

3 There let the way appear, steps unto heaven;
all that thou sendest me, in mercy given;
angels to beckon me
'Nearer, my God, to thee,
nearer to thee, nearer to thee.

4 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 to thee, nearer to thee.

5 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 to thee, nearer to thee.'
