“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded (James 4:8 NKJV).”

The Titanic was sinking; passengers were singing.

Nearer My God, to Thee by Sarah F. Flower Adams/ Vs. 6 by Edward Bickersteth, Jr.
Public Domain 1841 Lowell Mason 1856

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.

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.

There let the way appear, steps unto Heav'n;
All that Thou sendest me, in mercy given;
Angels to beckon me nearer, my God to Thee.

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.

Or, if on joyful wing cleaving the sky,
Sun, moon, and stars forgot, upward I'll fly,
Still my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee.

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.

Refrain

Nearer, my God to Thee,
Nearer to Thee.
