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,
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net ]
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter's power?
Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be?
Thru cloud and sunshine, O abide with me!
Hold Thou Thy word before my closing eyes,
Shine thru 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!
