Representative Text

1 “Nearer, my God, to Thee,”
Still nearer Thee,
Thro’ Him who shed His blood
Freely for me;
Thro’ Him who loved and died
Jesus the Crucified;
In Him may I abide,
Still nearer Thee.

2 “Nearer, my God, to Thee,”
Thro’ Christ the Way,
May Thy blest Spirit lead
Me, day by day;
Till, in my inmost heart,
Thy word shall life impart,
Knowing Thee as Thou art,
Still nearer Thee.

3 “Nearer, my God, to Thee,”
Thro’ grace divine,
Taking my will away,
Leaving but Thine;
Till in my soul Thou see
Likeness, dear Lord, to Thee,
Thus may I ever be,
Still nearer Thee.

4 “Nearer, my God, to Thee,”
As Thou may’st lead,
Thy all-sufficient grace
Meeting my need;
praying that light divine
May o’er my pathway shine;
Not mine the glory—Thine—
Still nearer Thee.
