ABIDE WITH US FOR IT IS TOWARD EVENING




Tarry with me, O my Saviour,
For the day is passing by;
See! the shades of evening gather,
And the night is drawing nigh.


Many friends were gathered round me
In the bright days of the past;
But the grave has closed above them,
And I linger here at last.


Deeper, deeper grow the shadows,
Paler now the glowing west,
Swift the night of death advances;
Shall it be the night of rest?


Lonely seems the vale of shadow;
Sinks my heart with troubled fear;
Give me faith for clearer vision,
Speak Thou, Lord, in words of cheer.


Let me hear Thy voice behind me,
Calming all these wild alarms;
Let me, underneath my weakness,
Feel the everlasting arms.


Feeble, trembling, fainting, dying,
Lord, I cast myself on Thee;
Tarry with me through the darkness;
While I sleep, still watch by me.


Tarry with me, O my Saviour,
Lay my head upon Thy breast
Till the morning; then awake meó
Morning of eternal rest.
