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, O

ABIDE WITH ME.
SWIFT TO ITS CLOSE EBBS OUT
LIFE'S LITTLE DAY:
EARTH'S JOYS GROW DIM, ITS
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
GRACE 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.
