    Verse 1
    The days that glide so swiftly down the highway
    Of the past are filled with many weary hours of pain,
    But the love of God grows stronger,
    As the waiting hour seems longer,
    And though silent be my voice,
    My longing heart repeats the strain
    Nearer, my God to Thee,
    Nearer to Thee

    Verse 2
    Each moment brings me nearer to the time
    When I must leave the scenes of earth that seem so dear to me
    But the sight of home is clearer,
    And my hope of heaven dearer,
    Than the world and all its glory,
    And its wealth could ever be.
    Nearer, my God to Thee,
    Nearer to Thee

    Verse 3
    So let the ransomed of the Lord repeat
    The song of trust, and lean the harder on the word of God
    On its promises abiding
    As a refuge 'neath it hiding,
    Travel bravely on the highway
    That the saints and martyrs trod
    Nearer, my God to Thee,
    Nearer to Thee
