Nearer, my God, to Thee

1) 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!

2) 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!

3) There let the way appear, steps unto heaven;
all that thou sendest me, in mercy given;
angels to beckon me nearer, my God, to thee;
nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!

4) 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!

5) Or if, on joyful wing cleaving the sky,
sun, moon and stars forgot, upward I fly,
still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to thee;
nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!

"Näher, mein Gott, zu Dir" ist ein christlicher Choral, der auf dem Gedicht "Nearer, My God, to Thee" der englischen Dichterin Sarah Flower Adams von 1841 basiert.
