Sarah F. Adams....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, 
 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 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! 

 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! 

 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!

Oh, to "pray" this with no reserve! Reminding mysef....

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:18)

Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. (Hebrews 10:22)

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. (James 4:8)
