nearer to Thee

I posted this song last week, and today I finally got around to actually looking up a lyrical version of the song.  I found this one, and I just love it, so I wanted to share it here.

Nearer my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!
E'en though it be a cross that raiseth me.

There let the way appear, steps unto heav'n.
all that Thou sendest me, in mercy given.

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.

Angels to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to Thee!
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee.

Or if, on joyful wing cleaving the sky,
Sun, moon, and stars forgot, upward I fly!
-- Sarah F. Adams
