|Abide with me

with me; fast falls the eventide;
darkness deepens; Lord with me abide:
other helpers fail, and comforts flee,
of the helpless, O abide with me.
to its close ebbs out lifeís little day;
joys grow dim, its glories pass away;
and decay in all around I see:
thou who changest not, abide with me.
need thy presence every passing hour;
but thy grace can foil the tempterís power?
like thyself my guide and stay can be?
cloud and sunshine, O abide with me.
fear no foe with thee at hand to bless;
have no weight and tears no bitterness:
is deathís sting? Where, grave, thy victory?
triumph still if though abide with me.
thou thy cross before my closing eyes,
through the gloom and point me to the skies;
morning breaks, and earthís vain shadows flee:
life and death, O Lord, abide with me.
