Nearer, my God, to Thee!

Nearer to Thee!

3 There let the way appear,
Steps unto heaven;
All that Thou sendest me,

In mercy given;
Angels to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to Thee!
Nearer to Thee!

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 to Thee!
