Program Notes on Nearer My God To Thee by Mason :

Nearer, my God, to Thee is a famous 19th century Christian hymn.

The first five verses were written in 1841 by British actress and poet Sarah Flower Adams (1805-1848).

The sixth verse was written by Edward H. Bickersteth, Jr.

This hymn is based on the scripture Genesis 28:11-12.

The music is the tune Bethany, which was composed in 1856 by American composer Lowell Mason (1792-1872).

The hymn has become associated with the RMS Titanic, as passengers reported that the string ensemble played it in the final minutes before the vessel sank.

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!

6. There in my Father's home, safe and at rest,
There in my Savior's love, perfectly blest;
Age after age to be,
Nearer, my God, to Thee;
Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!
