Description

Nearer, My God, to Thee is a popular 19th-century Christian hymn, with words by the English poet, Sarah Flower Adams, and music by Lowell Mason. The text retells the story of Jacob's dream found in Genesis 28:11–12 and contains the powerful message that, if we will allow it, our "stony griefs” can bring us nearer to God.

This arrangement is designed to be beautiful and simple; very accessible and satisfying to the choir, accompanist and listener.

Also available for SATB and SSA!

 


- TTBB, with Piano
- Music by Lowell Mason (1792-1872)

Text

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,
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer to thee!

Though like the wanderer,
The sun gone down,
Darkness be over me,
My rest a stone,
Yet in my dreams I’d be
Nearer, my God, to thee,
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,
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer to thee!

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,
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer to thee!
