Nearer, my God, to Thee! nearer to thee!
E’en though it be a cross that raiseth me,
Still my song shall be –
Nearer, my God, to Thee!
Nearer to Thee!


O aching heart, with sorrow torn,
Thy Lord is near and knows!
He knows it all – the feet way-worn,
The weary cares and woes,
The load of grief in anguish borne,
Thy Lord is near:…He knows.

From ‘Sankey’s Sacred Songs & Solos,’  Ira D. Sankey (1840-1908)
