Representative Text

1 Nearer to Thee,
On wings of faith ascending,
My longing soul
Would ever be.
Nearer to Thee,
Till Thou, Thy beauty lending,
Wilt glorify
Each task for me.

Welcome each day with its joy or sorrow,
Faith points the way to a glad tomorrow;
Where’er the work Thou hast planned may need me,
Nearer Thy great heart of love still lead me.

2 Nearer to Thee,
Till joy and sorrow blending,
Give me the strength
Of purity.
Nearer to Thee,
Till I with love transcending,
Thine image find,
Where’er it be. [Refrain]

3 Nearer to Thee,
Till I Thy beauty bearing,
Thy law of love
Fulfilled in me.
Nearer to Thee,
Till in Thy glory sharing;
The vict’ry won,
Thy face I see. [Refrain]
