LYRICS:
In articulo mortis
Caelitus mihi vires

Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee!
E’en though it be a cross
That raiseth me.

There let the way appear,
(In articulo mortis caelitus mihi vires.)
Steps unto heav’n;
(Deo adjuvante non timendum in perpetuum.)
All that Thou sendest me,
(Dirige nos Domine ad augusta per angusta.)
In mercy giv’n;
(Sic itur ad astra excelsior, excelsior, excelsior, excelsior, excelsior.)

Still all my song shall be
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
(Dirige nos Domine ad augusta per angusta.)
Nearer to Thee!
(Sic itur ad astra excelsior!)

Though like the wanderer,
(In articulo mortis caelitus mihi vires.)
The sun gone down,
(Deo adjuvante non timendum in perpetuum.)
Darkness be over me,
(Dirige nos Domine ad augusta per angusta.)
My rest a stone;
(Sic itur ad astra excelsior, excelsior, excelsior, excelsior, excelsior.)

Angels to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
(Dirige nos Domine ad augusta per angusta.)
Nearer to Thee!
(Sic itur ad astra excelsior!)

Or if, on joyful wing
(In articulo mortis caelitus mihi vires.)
Cleaving the sky,
(Deo adjuvante non timendum in perpetuum.)
Sun, moon, and stars forgot,
(Dirige nos Domine ad augusta per angusta.)
Upward I fly!
(Sic itur ad astra excelsior. Dirige nos Domine ad augusta per angusta. Sic itur ad astra excelsior!)

LATIN TRANSLATION
In articulo mortis [At the moment of death]
Caelitus mihi vires [My strength is from heaven]
Deo adjuvante non timendum [God helps us; nothing should be feared]
In perpetuum [Forever]
Dirige nos Domine [Direct us, O Lord]
Ad augusta per angusta [To high places by narrow roads]
Sic itur ad astra [Such is the path to the stars]
Excelsior [Ever upward]
