Words of the Hymn Played as the Titanic Went Down.

Nearer, My God, To Thee

Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee.
E’en though it be a cross,
That Leadeth 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’ll be
Nearer, my God to Thee.
Nearer to Thee!

Or,if on joyful wing, cleaving the sky,
Sun, moon, and stars forgot.
Uupward I’ll fly.
Still all my song shall be,
Nearer, my God, to Thee.
Nearer to Thee!
