The wicked is driven away in his wickedness,
but the righteous hath hope in his death.

Nearer, My God, to Thee
Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee! E’en though it be a cross that raiseth me; Still all my song shall be,
Though like the wanderer, the sun gone down, darkness be over me, my rest a stone; Yet in my dreams I’d be
There let the way appear, steps unto heaven: All that Thou sendest me, in mercy given: Angels to beckon me
Then with my waking thoughts bright with Thy praise , out of my stony griefs Bethel I’ll raise; So by my woes to be
Or if on joyful wing, cleaving the sky, sun, moon, and stars forgot, upward I fly, still all my song shall be,
Chorus: nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!
Words: Sarah F. Adams
Music: Lowell Mason
