    Lyrics

    Nearer, nearer

    The minister was preaching
    And the crowd was standing near
    The congregation sang in a tune
    In the hall, it was loud and clear

    All of the crowd that stood all around him
    They were crying as I could plainly see
    Oh, the songs that they sang was so touching
    They were singing to my God to Thee

    Nearer my God to thee
    Nearer to Thee, nearer to Thee
    Nearer to Thee, nearer to Thee
    Nearer to Thee, nearer to Thee

    Kept on singing
    Nearer my God to Thee
    Nearer to Thee, nearer to Thee
    Nearer to Thee, nearer to Thee
    Nearer to Thee, nearer to Thee

    Sometimes, I like to be in company
    But when I get out, I like to stay out for long
    Song is the only thing that can control me, Lord
    When I know trouble, trouble's about to come

    I fall down on my knees and call God late at night
    And I know He'll make my, my burdens alright
    I tell him, Lord, I have a desire to be
    Nearer, nearer my God to Thee, Alleluia

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

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

    I remember I was a little boy
    Mother still used to [Incomprehensible]
    I used to wonder what my mother was doing, have mercy, Lord
    I stepped out one morning found mother all folded up

    And mother had to rise up, she was looking towards the sky
    And I saw the tears as they fell down my mothers eyes
    And I can still hear the song mother was singing
    Nearer my God to Thee

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