In this beautiful violin performance, Jenny Oaks Baker plays the lovely song, 'Nearer, My God, to Thee.'


“At the moment of death, my strength is from heaven
God helps, nothing should be feared, forever
Direct us, O Lord, to high places by narrow roads
Such is the path to the stars, excelsior, still all my song shall be
Nearer, my God, to thee, nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!”
