Religious Music – Abide With Me lyrics

Abide with me, fast falls the eventide.
The darkness deepens, Lord with me abide.
When other helpers fail and comfort flee
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.

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.

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, 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 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.
