Nearer My God to Thee It’s a beautiful piece of Old Time spiritual music that the band played as the RMS Titanic sank.

Thank you.

Glad to help. Here’s the lyrics. We used to sing it in services in the Presbyterian Church I grew up in. It was written by Sarah F. Adams in 1841.

I was kinda thinking Leaning on the everlasting arms. Hmm gonna have relisten. You are probably correct ETPro.

Jeruba's avatar

@ETpro is definitely correct.

This is “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms.”

I concede. : ). Beautiful song, both of them.

@rosehips No argument there. I’ve been an atheistic agnostic for ages, but still love the music.

Haha I just happen to have a Christain background I haven’t been to church in a decade.. Minus an occasional wedding/funeral. (Not at the same time.) Still I sing or hum hymns on occasion.
I guess they have to have something that let’s people stand up from those wretched pews and take notice.
