Description

2-part Choir and Organ or Piano. 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.  The recording is of the SAB version, which can be found here.

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!
