PRAYER AND ASPIRATION
489
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 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 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 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 to Thee.
Sakah F. Adams, 1841
