NEARER, MY GOD, TO THEE.
Lowell Mason.—" Bethany." Sarah F. Adams, 1848.
There let the way appear Steps unto heaven;
All that Thou sendest me, In mercy given;
Angels to beckon me J: Nearer, my God, to Thee,:| Nearer to Thee 1"
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! "
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.
HOW GENTLE:GOD'S commands.
Slow and Soft.
H. G. Nagell—" Dennis."
Heirs of unending life,
While yet we sojourn here,
O let us our salvation work With trembling and with fear.
[Or this Hymn.]
God will support our hearts With might before unknown;
The work to be performed is ours, The strength is all His own.
Tis He that works to will, 'Tis He that works to do;
His is the power by which we act His be the glory too.
Beddome, 1795.
