Abide With Me (Fast Falls The Eventide) Lyrics & Chords

By Henry F. Lyte

(D)Abide (A)with me: (D)fast (G)falls the (A)even(D)tide; the darkness (G)deepens; Lord, with me (A)abide. (D)When (A)other (D)helpers (G)fail and comforts (E)flee, (A)Help of the (D)helpless, (G)O (D)abide (A)with (D)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 Lord who changes not, abide with me. I need your presence every passing hour. What but your grace can foil the tempter's power? Who like yourself my guide and strength can be? Through cloud and sunshine, O abide with me. I fear no foe with you at hand to bless, though ills have weight, and tears their bitterness. Where is death's sting? Where, grave, your victory? I triumph still, if you abide with me. Hold now your Word 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.
