lyrics

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.

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.

Hold then thy cross before my closing eyes.
Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies.
Heavn’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee;
in life and death, O Lord, abide with me.
