Abide With Me 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, oh, abide with me!

Swift to its close ebbs out lifes little day.
Earths 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 evry passing hour.
What but thy grace can foil the tempters powr?
Who, like thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, lord, abide with me!
