CAC GHB 22 : ABIDE WITH FAST FALL THE EVENTIDE

MAKE MELODY IN YOUR HEART TO THE LORD

22-Abide with me fast falls the even tide
Abide with us for it is towards evening Lk 24:29
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
Life's little day.
Earth's 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
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,
Lord, abide with me.

I fear no foe,
With Thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight,
And tears no bitterness.
Where is death's sting?
Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still,
If Thou abide with me.

Hold Thou Thy cross
Before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom
And point me to the skies.
Heaven's morning breaks,
And earth's vain shadows flee!
In life, in death,
O Lord, abide with me!
