1. 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 see Thy face.
2. At eventide, Thy Spirit sending,
3. Abide with us; with heavenly 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.
4. Abide with us, O Savior tender,
5. 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.
