Description

SAB Choir and Organ. Easy, and just right for your smaller (or summer) choir. A setting of the familiar tune: Bethany. This hymn is about the joy and comfort found in being close to God. Great for communion as well.  A 2-part version is also available.

Lyrics

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!

Though 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!

Now on joyful wing cleaving the sky,
sun, mo,On, and stars forgot, upward I fly,
still all my song shall be,
nearer, my God, to thee;
nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!
