Representative Text

1 Nearer to Him that hath loved me,
Nearer to Him who hath died;
Nearer through crosses and trials,
Nearer the Crucified.

Nearer, nearer to Him,
Nearer to Jesus, my Savior,
Nearer the Crucified.

2 Nearer the fountain of blessing,
Nearer the soul cleansing tide;
Nearer the blood of the sprinkling,
Nearer the riven side. [Refrain]

3 Nearer to Jesus, my Savior,
Nearer, still nearer His side;
Nearer my bless├Ęd Redeemer,
Nearer my shepherd and guide. [Refrain]

4 Nearer to robes of pure whiteness,
Nearer where loved ones abide;
Nearer the throne of His mercy,
Nearer the glorified. [Refrain]
