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 my God to Thee, nearer to Thee

There let the way appear, steps unto Hea'en
All that thou sendest me in mercy gi'en
Angels to beckon me, nearer my God to Thee
Nearer my God to Thee, nearer to Thee
