Abide with me
Tune: Eventide
Metre: 10 10 10 10

 

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 lifeís little day;

Earthís 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 tempterís power?

Who like thyself my guide and stay can be?

Through cloud and sunshine, O abide with me.

 

I fear no foe with thee at hand to bless;

Ills have no weight and tears no bitterness:

Where is deathís sting? Where, grave, thy victory?

I triumph still if though abide with me.

 

Hold thou thy cross before my closing eyes,

Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies;

Heavenís morning breaks, and earthís vain shadows flee:

In life and death, O Lord, abide with me.
