NEARER MY GOD TO THEE
Elvis Presley


Nearer, my God, to Thee,nearer to Thee!
Though like the wanderer, the sun gone down,
There let the way appear, steps unto heav'n;
Then, with my waking thoughts bright with Thy praise,
Or, if on joyful wing cleaving the sky,
There in my Father's home, safe and at rest,

E'en though it be a cross that raiseth me,
Dark--ness be over me, my rest a stone.
All that Thou sendest me, in mercy given;
Out of my stony griefs Bethel I'll raise;
Sun, moon, and stars forgot, upward I'll fly,
There in my Savior's love, perfectly blest;

Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee.
Yet in my dreams I'd be, nearer, my God, to Thee.
Angels to beckon me, nearer, my God, to Thee.

So by my woes to be, nearer, my God, to Thee.
Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee.
Age af--ter age to be, nearer my God to Thee.


Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!


ELVIS PRESLEY
