sea.

Near-er, my home, to - day, am I Than e'er I've been be - fore.
Near - er, to - day the great white throne, Near - er the crys-tal
Near - er, to leave the heav - y cross, Near - er to gain the crown.
There rolls the deep and unknown stream That leads at last to light. A- men.

5 E'en now, perchance, my feet

Are slipping on the brink,
And I, to-day, am nearer bome,-

Nearer than now I think.

6 Father, perfect my trust!

Strengthen my power of faith!
Nor let me stand, at last, alone

Upon the shore of death.

To spend e ter - nal years. From dungeon chain, to breathe the air Of boundless lib. er - ty. And rise, on strong ex- ult - ing wing, To live a-mong the just. Like Thee, they conquer in the strife, To reign with Thee on high. A-men.
