Monday Morning Meditation: Sam Cooke And The Soul Stirrers ‘Nearer To Thee’


Monday morning can be hard.  The hymn that we can start this Holy Week with is Sam Cooke’s ‘Nearer To Thee’

Sam Cooke could sing the paint off plaster and when you hear him with the Soul Stirrers. When the song gets to the end and sings “I wonder if you know bad company will make a good child go astray.’ You will feel like joing


Let’s keep that sentiment going as we face the week.

I hope the lyrics will inspire you.
Nearer to thee, nearer my God to Thee, nearer, nearer to Thee
We kept on singing, nearer my God, nearer my God to Thee
Oh Lord, we kept on singing nearer Nearer my God, nearer, nearer to Thee
