287. Abide with Us, Our Savior

1 Abide with us, our Savior,
Nor let your mercy cease;
From Satan's might defend us,
And give our hearts your peace.

2 Abide with us, our Helper,
Sustain us by your Word;
Let us and all your people
To living faith be stirred.

3 Abide with us, Redeemer,
O Light, eternal Light;
Your truth direct and guide us
To flee from error's night.

4 Abide in princely bounty
With us, large-hearted Lord,
Our lives with grace and wisdom
Enriching through your Word.

5 Abide as our protector
Among us, Lord, our strength;
Let world and wily Satan
Be overcome at length.

6 Abide among us always,
O Lord, our faithful friend,
and take us to our mansions
When time and world shall end.
