1 Near-er, my God, to Thee, Near - er to Thee! E'en though it be a cross That raiseth me;

0:4

Still all my song shall be, Nearer, my God, to Thee, Nearer to Thee, Nearer to Thee! A-MEN.

3 A faith that shines more bright and clear 5 Lord, give me such a faith as this,

When tempests rage without, That, when in danger, knows no fear,

In darkness feels no doubt;

And then, whate'er may come,

I taste e'en now the hallowed bliss Of an eternal home.

1 Calm me, my God, and keep me calm, While these hot

1 Calm me, my God, and keep me calm, 4 Calm in the hour of buoyant health,

While these hot breezes blow;

Be like the night-dew's cooling balm
Upon earth's fevered brow.

2 Calm me, my God, and keep me calm;
Let Thine outstretched wing
Be like the shade of Elim's palm
Beside her desert-spring.

3 Yes, keep me calm, though loud and rude

The sounds my ear that greet, Calm in the closet's solitude, Calm in the bustling street;

Calm in my hour of pain; Calm in my poverty or wealth, Calm in my loss or gain;

5 Calm in the sufferance of wrong, Like Him who bore my shame, Calm 'mid the threatening, taunting throng

Who hate Thy holy Name;

6 Calm as the ray of sun or star
Which storms assail in vain;
Moving unruffled through earth's war,
The eternal calm to gain.

Rev. Horatius Bonar, 1857
