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, O 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 everything I see;
O Lord, Unchanging One, abide with
me.

I need Your presence
Every passing hour.
What but Your grace can foil Satan’s power?
Who, like Yourself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with
me.

Hold now Your 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.

I Need You
I Need You
I Need You, Lord, I Need You

In my hopes
I Need You
In my dreams
I Need You
In my cries and in my screams
I Need You
I Need You
I Need You, Lord, I Need You

In my life
I Need You
In my death
I Need You
In every day I draw a breath
I Need You
I Need You
I Need You, Lord, I Need You

Abide with me
Till I with You reside
Hold me in Your will, Lord with me abide;
Till You come again, and Your face I see,
By Your grace I’ll live, O abide with
me!
