Abide with me
Abide with me, fast falls the eventide
The darkness deepens Lord with me abide
When other helpers fail and comforts flee
Help of the helpless Oí abide with me
Swift to its close ebbs out lifes little day
Earths joys grow dim its glories pass away
Change and decay in all around I see
O Thou who changes not, abide with me
I need Thy presence every passing hour
What but Thy grace can foil the tempterís 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,
Illís have no weight, and tears no bitterness
Where is deathís song? Where grave, thy victory?
I triumph, still, if Thou abide with me.
Reveal Thyself before my closing eyes
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies
Heavenís morning breaks, and earthís vain shadows flee
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.
