Nearer My God

Something this beautiful should be shared.  Interestingly, "Nearer My God to Thee" was written by a Unitarian actress, Sarah Flower Adams, with the music written by her sister Eliza.  The history of the song can be found here.  However, it wasn't until the words were paired with a tune by Lowell Mason that it gained popularity.
