Lyrics from Relief Society Song Book, 1919, no. 60

1. Nearer, dear Savior, to Thee,
Nearer, nearer to Thee;
Ever I’m stiving to be
Nearer, yet nearer to Thee!
Trusting, in Thee I confide,
Hoping in Thee I abide—

Refrain.
Take, O take and cherish me,
Nearer, dear Savior, to Thee!

2. Nearer, dear Savior, to Thee,
Nearer, nearer to Thee;
Proved by my trials I’ll be
Nearer, yet nearer to Thee!
Humbly I come to Thee now,
Earnest, I prayerfully bow—

3. Nearer, dear Savior, to Thee,
Nearer, nearer to Thee;
Ever my anthem will be
Nearer, yet nearer to Thee!
Loving Thee, ever I pray,
Aid me Thy will to obey—

4. Nearer, dear Savior, to Thee,
Nearer, nearer to Thee;
Let me by holiness be
Nearer, yet nearer to Thee!
When all my trials are done,
When my reward I have won,
