    Her hymn Nearer My God to thee was the last hymn played as the Titanic went down. It was also played at the ship wreck of the SS Valencia….Also for the Memorial of the US Ambassador and others killed in the terrorist attack at Benghazi Tripoli

Best Poem of Sarah Flower Adams

Nearer, My God, To Thee.

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.

Though, like the wanderer,
The sun gone down,
Darkness be over me,
My rest a stone;
Yet in my dreams I'd be
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee.

Then let the way appear
Steps unto heaven;
All that Thou sendest me
In mercy given:
Angels to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee.

Then with my waking thoughts
Bright with Thy ...

Read the full of Nearer, My God, To Thee.
