Nearer My God to Thee

musician/member name: People & Blogs
Duration: 00:01:46
1800’s hymn – L. Mason (music), S. Adams (lyrics)

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,
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer to thee!

There let the way appear,
Steps unto heav'n;
All that thou sendest me,
In mercy giv'n;
Angels to beckon me

Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer to thee!

Greg - you did a beautiful job on this!  I love the sound of you dulcimer!

You are too kind, Strumelia and Dusty.  If I ever learn how to fingerpick,  dulcimer , I'd like to have a more Mississippi John-esque go at this song.

Nice job, Greg. I also learned this song from Mississippi John Hurt (one of my all-time faves) but never thought to play it on the dulcimer.  You've got it, though!  Good idea and great execution!

I really like the older hymns.  The images are perfect, too.  Well done Greg.  clapper

Thank you all. It's a beautiful old song, I took a liking to it a long time ago. Couldn't get it out of my head since I heard the Mississippi John Hurt version.

Thank you so much for sharing this music Greg. You play this very well. "Nearer My God To Thee" is without a doubt my favorite hymn. I find that it is a joy to play and a joy to sing.
