nearer my god to thee

G                  C

Nearer, my God, to Thee

G               D

Nearer to Thee

Em                   C

E'en though it be a cross

G        D       G

That raiseth me

Em              C     

Still all my song shall be

G                 D

Nearer, my God, to Thee

G                C                    G    D       G

Nearer my God to Thee, nearer to Thee

 

 

G                         C

Though, like the wanderer

G                     D

The sun gone down

Em                 C

Darkness be over me

G         D     G

My rest a stone

Em             C    

Yet in my dreams I'd be

G                  D

Nearer, my God, to Thee

G                C                    G    D       G

Nearer my God to Thee, nearer to Thee

 

G                     C

Then, with my waking thoughts

G                       D

Bright with Thy praise

Em              C

Out of my stony griefs

G        D     G

Bethel I'll raise

Em            C    

So by my woes to be

G                 D

Nearer, my God, to Thee

G                C                    G     D      G

Nearer my God to Thee, nearer to Thee

 

 

G                  C

There in my Father’s home,

G                 D

safe and at rest,

Em                 C

There in my Savior’s love,

G      D     G

perfectly blest;

Em             C 

Age after age to be

G                D

Nearer my God to Thee

G                C                   G     D      G

Nearer my God to Thee, nearer to Thee
