Nearer My God to Thee

“Nearer My God to Thee” by Fernando Ortega.

As I think about it, this hymn is one favorite hymns because I’m always drawn back to it.  I like this simple, quiet arrangement.  It creates a lingering feel for the desire to be close to God, despite obstacles.

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.

It never gets old
