Written by william monk and h.f. lyteArranged by dave hartleyAvailable on the collection carnival!Abide with me, fast falls the eventideThe darkness deepens, lord abide with meWhen other helpers fail and comforts fleeHelp of the helpless, o abide with meI fear no foe, with thee at hand to blessIlls have no weight and tears no bitternessWhere is death’s sting, where, grave, that victoryI triumph still if thou abide with meHold thou thy cross before my closen eyesShine throught the gloom and point me to the skiesHeaven’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows fleeIn life, in death, o lord abide with meIn life, in death, o lord abide with me
