Lyrics

Verse 1 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. Verse 2 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. Verse 3 Not a brief glance I beg, a passing word But as Thou dwell'st with Thy disciples, Lord Familiar, condescending, patient, free Come not to sojourn, but abide with me. Verse 4 Come not in terrors, as the King of kings But kind and good, with healing in Thy wings Tears for all woes, a heart for every plea Come, Friend of sinners, and thus bide with me Verse 5 Thou on my head in early youth didst smile And, though rebellious and perverse meanwhile Thou hast not left me, oft as I left Thee On to the close, O Lord, abide with me Verse 6 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 Verse 7 I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness Where is death's sting? Where, grave, thy victory I triumph still, if Thou abide with me. Verse 8 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...
