Program Notes on Nearer, my God, to Thee by Mason :

This score is an arrangement of the famous 19th century hymn Nearer, my God, to Thee for viola duet (two violas) with piano accompaniment.

It is set in the key of C major.

The Viola I part is to be played in the third position, although it can also be played in the first position if the violist so desires.

The Viola II part uses double stops and is thus to be played by the viola teacher or by a more advanced violist.

Please note that in this sheet music download, both viola parts appear on the same page.

Music : Lowell Mason (1792-1872), Bethany, 1856.

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!
