    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 to Thee!
          Nearer, my God, to Thee.

    He sendeth sun, he sendeth shower,
Alike they’re needful to the flower;
And joys and tears alike are sent
To give the soul fit nourishment.
As comes to me or cloud or sun,
Father! thy will, not mine, be done.
          He sendeth Sun, he sendeth Shower.

    Once have a priest for enemy, good bye
To peace.
          Vivia Perpetua. Act iii. Sc. ii.
