   G    D    Em  C                 G              D
1 Near -er,  my  God, to Thee,    Near-er to      Thee!
2 There let  the Way ap-pear,     Steps un-to     heav'n;
3 Then  with my  wak-ing thoughts Bright with Thy praise,

   G    D     Em   C              G   D        G     
1 E'en though it   be a cross    That rais-eth me;
2 All  that   thou send-est me,  In   mer-cy   giv'n;
3 out  of     my   ston-y griefs Beth-el I'll  raise;

   G     C   G                 Bm   C   G           D          
1 Still all  my song shall be, Near-er, my God, to Thee!
2 An   -gels to beck-on me     Near-er, my God, to Thee!
3 So    by   my woes to be     Near-er, my God, to Thee!

   G          C             G       D   G
1 Near-er, my God, to Thee, Near-er to Thee!
2 Near-er, my God, to Thee, Near-er to Thee!
3 Near-er, my God, to Thee, Near-er to Thee!
