"Nearer My God to Thee" as written by and Hoyt/matthews Hawkins....
Nearer my God to thee
Nearer to thee
Even thought 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
Step unto heaven
All that thou sendest me
In mercy given
Angles to beckon me
Nearer my God to thee

Nearer my God to thee
Nearer to thee

Then with my walking thoughts
Bright with thy praise
Out of the stony greifs
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
