364. Abide With Me, I Need Thee

1 Abide with me, I need Thee ev'ry day,
To lead me safe through all the weary way;
When storms surround and only clouds I see,
Lord, be my comfort and abide with me!

2 Be with me, Lord, where’er my path may lead,
Fulfill Thy Word, supply my ev'ry need;
Help me to live each day more close to Thee,
And oh, dear Lord, I pray, abide with me!

3 Abide with me, my Lord, and when at last
This earth and all its weary cares are past,
I’ll pray no more that Thou abide with me,
For then, at last, I shall abide with Thee!
