“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
