Description

SATB and piano or organ.
  An arrangement of the hymn-tune Horbury by Bacchus Dykes. Text by Sarah Flowers Adams. Gentle and peaceful. 

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,

Chorus: 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,

Chorus

Then with my waking thoughts bright with Thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs Bethel I'll raise;

So by my woes to be nearer, my God, to Thee,

Chorus
