    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!

    LYRICS:
    IN ARTICULO MORTIS // At the moment of death
    CAELITUS MIHI VIRES // My strength is from heaven
    DEO ADJUVANTE NON TIMENDUM // God helping, nothing should be feared
    IN PERPETUUM // Forever
    DIRIGE NOS DOMINE // Direct us, O Lord
    AD AUGUSTA PER ANGUSTA // To high places by narrow roads
    SIC ITUR PER CHRISTUM // Such is the path through Christ
    EXCELSIOR // Ever upward

    Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!
    E'en though it be a cross that raiseth me.

    There let the way appear, steps unto heaven;
    All that thou sendest me, in mercy given.

    Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee;
    Nearer my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!

    Though like the wanderer, the sun gone down,
    Darkness be over me, my rest a stone.

    Angels to beckon me, nearer, my God, to Thee;
    Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!

    Or if, on joyful wing, cleaving the sky,
    Sun, moon, and stars forgot, upward I fly.

    This arrangement of “Nearer, My God, to Thee” is comprised of texts from the beloved Sarah Adams’ hymn combined with fragments of liturgical texts in Latin used by the ancient church.

    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!

    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!

    Lyrics for song:

    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!

    Nearer, My God, to Thee is associated with the RMS Titanic, as one passenger reported that the ship's band played the hymn as the Titanic sank. The Bethany version was used in the 1943 film Titanic and in the Jean Negulesco's 1953 film Titanic, whereas the Horbury version was played in Roy Ward Baker's 1958 movie about the sinking, A Night to Remember. The Bethany version was again used in James Cameron's 1997 Titanic.

    The verse was written by the English poet and Unitarian hymn writer Sarah Flower Adams (18051848) at her home in Sunnybank, Loughton, Essex, England, in 1841. It was first set to music by Adams's sister, the composer Eliza Flower, for William Johnson Fox's collection Hymns and Anthems.

    In the United Kingdom, the hymn is usually associated with the 1861 hymn tune Horbury by John Bacchus Dykes. Horbury is named after 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. Methodists prefer the tune Propior Deo (Nearer to God), written by Arthur Sullivan (of Gilbert and Sullivan) in 1872. Sullivan also wrote a second setting of the hymn to a tune referred to as St. Edmund, and there are other versions, including one referred to as Liverpool by John Roberts. Other ninetenth century settings include those by the Rev. N. S. Godfrey, W. H. Longhurst,[9] Herbert Columbine, Frederic N. Löhr, Thomas Adams, and one composed jointly by William Sterndale Bennett and Otto Goldschmidt. In 1955 the English composer and musicologist Sir Jack Westrup made another setting of the text, in the form of an anthem for four soloists with organ accompaniment.

    Text: Sarah F. Adams, 1805-1848
    Music: Lowell Mason, 1792-1872

    We love the emotion felt in this song, and were so excited when Madilyn Paige said she would sing it with us. We feel the repeated phrase, nearer, my God, to thee, is an emotional outpouring of a desire to be more closely united with God, the Father, and His angelic hosts in both life and death. At times, we may feel like we are wanderers, wandering in darkness, longing for His presence. Remember, He said, I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. -Proverbs 8:17
    There, let the way appear, steps unto heaven.

    We are never alone when we stand with our Father in Heaven. -Thomas S. Monson

    Hope you enjoy our version of Nearer, My God, to Thee.

    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!

    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!

    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!
