Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   We have yet another sad edition of the NNHS Newsletter.   


  From Jimmy Parker ('62) of VA - 04/05/06:

Carol,
 
    I sadly noted in the obits this morning that two of my classmates passed away: Wilbur "Buddy" Gibson and William Douglas Burns. Both were really good guys. Take care.

To Buddy's family and to Mike, I just happened to notice this and am very sorry for your loss. I've thought about you two guys, Buddy and Mike, over the years and wondered what you were doing. My deepest sympathies. Your old friend, Dan Coleman, NNHS.

Nearer My God to Thee

Words: Sarah F. Adams, 1805-1848
Music: Lowell Mason, 1792-1872


1. Nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!
E'en though it be a cross that raiseth me,
still all my song shall be,
nearer, my God, to thee;
nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!

2. Though like the wanderer, the sun gone down,
darkness be over me, my rest a stone;
yet in my dreams I'd be
nearer, my God, to thee;
nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!

3. There let the way appear, steps unto heaven;
all that thou sendest me, in mercy given;
angels to beckon me
nearer, my God, to thee;
nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!

4. Then, with my waking thoughts bright with thy praise,
out of my stony griefs Bethel I'll raise;
so by my woes to be
nearer, my God, to thee;
nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!

5. Or if, on joyful wing cleaving the sky,
sun, moon, and stars forgot, upward I fly,
still all my song shall be,
nearer, my God, to thee;
nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!
