GEC English Hymn

English Hymn 92

STANZA 1
Nearer, my God, to Thee, Nearer to Thee!
E’en tho’ it be a cross
That raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be, Nearer, my God, to Thee;
Nearer, my God, to Thee, Nearer, to Thee!

STANZA 2
Tho’ 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, my God, to Thee, Nearer, to Thee!

STANZA 3
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, my God, to Thee, Nearer, to Thee!

STANZA 4
Then, with my waking thot’s
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, my God, to Thee, Nearer, to Thee!

STANZA 5
Or if, on joyful wing, Cleaving the sky,
Sun, moon, and stars forgot,
Upwards I fly,
Still all my song shall be, Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee, Nearer, to Thee
