New Music Video: Nearer My God to Thee

December 6, 2015

Many of us have heard the hallowed Christian hymn “Nearer, My God, to Thee,” but have you ever thought about what it actually means to draw nearer to God? Is it done physically, mentally, spiritually, or in a variety of ways to feel Him close by?

A new Mormon Channel music video beautifully depicts how the Savior loves and draws near to His people and how much He wants us to come to Him for help, comfort, and support in our lives.

The images in the video are captured from the Bible Videos series and are available for download here.

This rendition of the hymn is performed by Eric Malizia and is available for download here.

Comment and let us know how you choose to draw nearer to God. In the meantime, here are some suggestions:

  • Attend the temple regularly, or prepare to do so.
  • Start your morning off with a prayer and scripture reading.
  • Study a topic that you are curious about in the scriptures.
  • Ask your bishop for advice on how to live as God wants you to.
  • Pay a full tithe and fast offerings to help build the Lord’s kingdom on the earth.
  • Write in your journal about spiritual experiences or thoughts you have throughout the day.
  • Help someone in your ward who needs a friend or service performed.
