Abide With Me


Abide with me, fast falls the Even tide
The Darkness deepens, Lord with me abide
When other helpers fail and comforts flee
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.
Swift to its close ebbs Life's little day
Earth's joy grows dim, it's glories pass away
Change and decay in all around I see,
O Thou, who changest not
Abide with me.
I need Thy presence every passing hour
What but Thy grace can foil the Tempter's power
Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be
Through cloud and sunshine
Lord Abide with me
I fear no foe with Thee at hand to bless
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness,
Where is Death's sting?
Where grave Thy victory?
I triumph still if Thou
Abide with me.
Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes
Shine through the gloom
And point me to the skies.
Heaven's morning breaks
And Earth's vain shadows flee
In Life, in Death, O Lord
Abide with me
