Abide with us the day is waning




"Abide with us,
the day is waning,"
Thus prayed the two
while on the way;
We read that Thou,
O Lord, remaining,
Didst all their doubts
and fears allay.
Incline Thine ear,
Thou King of Grace,
When, praying thus,
we seek Thy face.


At eventide, Thy Spirit sending,
Help us, O Lord,
our watch to keep,
In prayer devout before
Thee bending,
Ere we our eyelids
close in sleep,
Confessing sin in deed and word
With hope of mercy
from the Lord.


Abide with us;
with heav'nly gladness
Illumine, Lord, our darkest day;
And when we weep in
pain and sadness,
Be Thou our Solace,
Strength and Stay.
Tell of Thy woe,
Thy victory won,
When Thou didst pray:
"Thy will be done."


Abide with us, O Savior tender,
That bitter day
when life shall end,
When to the grave
we must surrender,
And fear and pain our
hearts shall rend.
The shield of faith
do Thou bestow
When trembling we
must meet the foe.


When earthly help
no more availeth,
To sup with us Thou
wilt be nigh;
Thou givest strength
that never faileth,
In Thee we grave and death defy.
While earth is
fading from our sight,
Our eyes behold the
realms of light.
