    Nearer, My God, to Thee is a 19th-century Christian hymn by Sarah Flower Adams, based loosely on Genesis 28:11--19, the story of Jacob's dream.

    The original lyrics to the hymn are as follows:

    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,

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

    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,

    Chorus

    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,

    Chorus

    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,

    Chorus

    Or if on joyful wing, cleaving the sky,
    Sun, moon, and stars forgot, upwards I fly,
    Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee,

    A sixth verse was later added to the hymn by Ed­ward H. Bick­er­steth, Jr. as follows:

    There in my Father's home, safe and at rest,
    There in my Savior's love, perfectly blest;
    Age after age to be, nearer my God to Thee.

    Chorus

    Nearer, My God, to Thee is also associated with the sinking of the RMS Titanic, as some survivors later reported that the ship's string ensemble played the hymn as the vessel sank.

    LATIN TEXT:
    In articulo mortis
    Caelitus mihi vires
    Deo adjuvante non timendum
    In perpetuum
    Dirige nos domine
    Ad augusta per angusta
    Sic itur ad astra
    Excelsior

    ENGLISH TRANSLATION:
    At the moment of death
    My strength is from heaven
    God helping, nothing should be feared
    For ever
    Direct us, O Lord
    To high places by narrow roads
    Such is the path to the stars
    Ever upward

  • Titanic - Nearer My God To Thee

    5:41

    Please enjoy this full version. This is the song the band played before the Titanic sank.

    Sometime around 2.10 a.m. as the Titanic began settling more quickly into the icy North Altantic, the sounds of ragtime, familiar dance tunes and popular waltzes that had floated reassuringly across her decks suddenly stopped as Bandmaster Wallace Hartley tapped his bow against his violin. Hartley and his musicians, all wearing their lifebelts now, were standing back at the base of the second funnel, on the roof of the First Class Lounge, where they had been playing for the better part of an hour. There were a few moments of silence, then the solemn strains of the hymn Nearer My God to Thee began drifting across the water. It was with a perhaps unintended irony that Hartley chose a hymn that pleaded for the mercy of the Almighty, as the ultimate material conceit of the Edwardian Age, the ship that God Himself couldn't sink, foundered beneath his feet. As the band played, the slant of the deck grew steeper, while from within the hull came a rapidly increasing number of thuds, bangs and crashes as interior furnishings broke loose, walls and partitions collapsed--the Titanic was only moments from breaking apart.

    Please enjoy these simple recordings and feel free to give suggestions and requests! Thumbs up?... What did you like? Thumbs down?... What can I change for you?

    Keep in mind that the main purpose of these videos is to help folks learn harmony parts to hymns and not to sound perfect. These recordings will sound a touch raw for a few reasons; I am not a trained singer, I am using very simple recording hardware, my recording 'studio' is a coat closet that is just big enough for me to fit in. ( :

    If you enjoy the way that these hymns are sang and want to experience them in person, stop by just about any church of Christ and they'll likely be singing them the same way. Without instruments.

    My recording process:
    -Record each part on a Rode NT1-A on to a Zoom H4 recorder
    -Some pitch correction in Melodyne
    -Mix in Mixcraft 6
    -Combine audio and sheet music in Corel VideoStudio X7
    -Music is typeset in Finale 2012 by me or borrowed from PDHymns.com
    -Gear can be found here:

    To my knowledge, most of the hymns that I record and post are public domain (except the ones I've obtained permission for). If you notice one that is NOT public domain, let me know as soon as possible so that I can take that video down.

    Story behind the song:
    This week we thought we'd reach back to our roots. We rolled the cameras in a place where they have rolled many times before -- Sundance, Utah. Steve has spent many summers there in a cabin built by his grandfather. It's also where he proposed to his wife (she said yes, by the way =) Such an incredible place of beauty and raw nature merited a piece of music that matched the setting. This arrangement of Nearer My God to Thee was the first song Steve and Al recorded together. It is based upon and inspired by an arrangement of James Stevens for 9 voices (arranged for the BYU singing group Vocal Point). For us music often is a spiritual experience -- a way to connect with others, with nature, and with a loving God. This video is not meant to exclude those that do not believe in God. We hope everyone can find beauty in this music and relate it to how they feel when they experience joy-whether it's joy from hiking in nature, spending time with family, serving others, or relaxing on a beach. Enjoy!

    Ближе, Господь, к Тебе, ближе к Тебе,
    Хотя б крестом пришлось подняться мне;
    Нужно одно лишь мне:
    Ближе, Господь, к Тебе,

    В пустыне странник я, и ночь темна.
    Отдых на камне лишь найдет глава.
    Но сердце и во сне
    Ближе, Господь, к Тебе,

    И пробудясь от сна песнь воспою;
    Твоей хвалой, Христос, плач заменю.
    В скорби отрада мне:
    Ближе, Господь, к Тебе!

    Когда земную жизнь окончу я,
    Когда во славу Ты введешь меня,
    Вечная радость мне:
    Ближе, Господь, к Тебе

    English Version
    1. 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!

    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;
    nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!

    3. 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;
    nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!

    4. 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;
    nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!

  • Titanic Violin: Nearer My God To Thee

    2:50

    I love this song, it is sooo sad. It brings a tear to my eye every time. Just imagine being on a boat and only 6 people, including you are rescued on the lifeboats. 706 people survived. 1,516 people died, including the captain. There were 2,228 people on the ship. It's a shame how many people died. a shame. :'(. The Titanic sunk by lousy rivets, HUMAN ERROR, AN ICEBERG, AND OTHER THINGS. 14000 psi rubbed against the rivets, which made them break, which made water start pouring in the ship. It then took 2 hours for the ship to sink. It got 5 ice reports, yet the captain continued the voyage to America. 1 ice report did go through, and when the Titanic tried to get help, the ice person went to bed and didn't hear the emergency.

  • Nearer My God to Thee - The International Staff Band

    3:04

    No copyright intended - may this music glorify Gods name.

    This is Largo performed by The international Staff Band. This track features on the ISB's album entitled Together, produced with Universal Music and released 24th November 2008. Together was nominated in the Classical BRIT's NS&I Album of the Year 2009 category which included the top 10 selling classical albums of 2008. (information taken from their website)

    This is a very popular song with beautiful lyrics:
    1. 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!

    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;
    nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!

    3. There let the way appear, steps unto heaven;
    all that thou sendest me, in mercy given;
    angels to beckon me
    nearer, my God, to thee;
    nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!

    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;
    nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!

    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;
    nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!

  • Być bliżej Ciebie chcę / Nearer, my God, to Thee - Roman Rzadkosz

    4:53

    Być bliżej Ciebie chcę – pieśń kościelna śpiewana m.in. w języku polskim a wzorowana na XIX-wiecznej angielskiej pieśni Nearer, my God, to Thee inspirowanej snem Jakuba z Księgi Rodzaju (Rdz 28, 11–19). Oryginalny tekst został napisany przez unitariańską poetkę Sarah Fuller Adams w 1841 r. Według niektórych świadków właśnie ten hymn był grany jako ostatni utwór, przez orkiestrę podczas tonięcia Titanica.

    NEARER MY GOD TO THEE

    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.

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

    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.

    There let the way appear,
    Steps unto Heav’n;
    All that Thou sendest me, in mercy given;
    Angels to beckon me nearer, my God, to Thee.

    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.

    Or, if on joyful wing
    Cleaving the sky,
    Sun, moon, and stars forgot, upward I’ll fly,
    Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee.

    There in my Father’s home,
    Safe and at rest,
    There in my Savior’s love, perfectly blest;
    Age after age to be, nearer my God to Thee.

  • RMS Titanic - Nearer My God To Thee

    4:30

    A collection of photographs of RMS Titanic, its lifeboats, RMS Carpathia and its officers, as well as various locations where people gathered for news, or to receive survivors, after the ship foundered.

    The hymn Nearer My God To Thee that accompanies the photographs is sung by the Knickerbocker Quartet. This recording was made in March 1910 and originally released on a black Edison Amberol cylinder. The transfer I have used is taken from a slightly later Edison Blue Amberol cylinder, issued in December 1912 but which used the same master as the 1910 recording. I transferred the cylinder recording using an electrical cylinder player and then carried out restoration of the audio. I also carried out restoration work on the photographs.

    The final photograph is of the Titanic Memorial in Donegall Square, Belfast, in the grounds of Belfast City Hall. The memorial was dedicated in June 1920. I chose this as it is the only memorial to commemorate all of the victims of the Titanic, passengers and crew alike.

    Of course, Nearer My God To Thee has strong associations with the Titanic, as a number of survivors recalled the ship's band playing it as the vessel sank, though others thought the song played was the then-popular waltz Songe d'Automne. The confusion is compounded by the fact that there are several versions of Nearer My God To Thee. As the Wikipedia entry for the song explains: In the United Kingdom, the hymn is usually associated with the 1861 hymn tune Horbury by John Bacchus Dykes, named for a village near Wakefield, England, where Dykes had found peace and comfort. In the rest of the world, the hymn is usually sung to the 1856 tune Bethany by Lowell Mason. British Methodists prefer the tune Propior Deo (Nearer to God), written by Arthur Sullivan (of Gilbert and Sullivan) in 1872….Wallace Hartley, the ship's band leader, who went down with the ship (as did all other musicians on board), liked the hymn and had wished to have it performed at his funeral. As a Methodist Briton, he was familiar with both the Horbury and Propior Deo versions but would not likely have used Bethany.

    Apart from the 1958 film A Night to Remember, which used the Horbury version, all the Titanic movies to date have used the Bethany version, which is the one you hear here played by the Knickerbocker Quartet. The words are by Sarah Flower Adams. The arrangement is by Herbert Johnson. Formed in 1909, the Knickerbocker Quartet consisted of Gus Reed, Harry Anthony, Frederick Wheeler and George M. Stricklett.

    I believe that all the exterior shots of the ship are of the Titanic, using the steel screen along the forward half of the A Deck promenade as a guide (a feature not present on the sister ship RMS Olympic). However, it is possible that some of the interior shots are of the RMS Olympic (whose interior fittings were identical to the Titanic's), even though all of the photos are labelled as showing the Titanic.
