Abide with me, fast falls the eventide
The darkness deepens, lord abide with me
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 deaths sting, where, grave, that victory
I triumph still if thou abide with me

Hold thou thy cross before my closen eyes
Shine throught the gloom and point me to the skies
Heavens morning breaks, and earths vain shadows flee

In life, in death, o lord abide with me
In life, in death, o lord abide with me
