1 Abide with me, my Savior dear,
And soothe this troubled heart,
It makes me glad to have thee near,
And feel how kind thou art.

O Master, blessed, good and true,
Let me thy beauty, beauty see,
Thy precious words are ever new,
Dear Christ, abide with me.

2 I could not keep the narrow way,
If I could walk alone;
Oh, guide my feet through all the day,
My hand hold in thy own. [Refrain]

3 This world would be a dreary place,
And life a burden long,
Without thy sweet and tender grace,
Which fills our souls with song. [Refrain]
