Hymn Inspired by Jacob's Dream
Hearst's Chicago American
The hymn, Nearer, my God, to Thee," which President McKinley made famous in his dying moments, and which was sung at funeral services the world over on September 19, has an interesting history.
It is said to be the best metrical expression in modern psalmody of the desire for a more intimate spiritual acquaintance with God.
Its imagery embraces the associations of one of the most sublime and interesting religious experiences recorded in the early Hebrew scriptures, Jacob's vision at Luz.
