Abide with me, Lord; falls the eventide;
As darkness deepens, Lord with me abide.
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, 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, abide with me.

Abide with me, Lord,
Abide with me,
Thou art my Promise, my Surety,
Before the Throne, Thou, my perfect Plea
Abide with me, Lord,
Abide with me

I fear no foe with Thee at hand to bless,
Ills have no weight, tears lose their bitterness,
Where is thy sting, death? Where, grave, thy victory?
My risen Savior abides with me.
