John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:7518
AUTHOR:Phoebe Cary (1824–1871)
QUOTATION:Nearer my Father’s house,
  Where the many mansions be,
Nearer the great white throne,
  Nearer the crystal sea.


Nearer the bound of life,
  Where we lay our burdens down,
Nearer leaving the cross,
  Nearer gaining the crown.
ATTRIBUTION:Nearer Home.
