390 (P.M.) Sarah Adams

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 to Thee.

Though like a 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.

There let the 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 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 to Thee.

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.
