Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!

Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee,

 Refrain:
Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!

Verse 2

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,

Verse 3

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,

Verse 4

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,

Verse 5

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,

One of the challenges I encountered as a beginner saxophonist was getting correct solfa notation of gospel songs that I love. I am therefore posting lyrics and solfa notations for songs that I enjoy playing on the saxophone.

Hymns usually have more than one tune that can be use for it. If you know the meter of the Hymn you can pick any tune that goes with the meter.

THE METER FOR THIS HYMN : 6.4.6.4.6.6.4.

PSALMS 143:8(ESV)

Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love,
    for in you I trust.
Make me know the way I should go,
    for to you I lift up my soul.
