Representative Text

1 All the day, in sweet communion,
Jesus, I have walked with thee;
Do not now withdraw thy presence,
From this hour abide with me.

Thou my life, my only guide,
There is nought in heav’n or earth I ask but thee;
Hear my prayer, my soul’s petition,
Go not hence, abide with me.

2 One by one the evening shadows
Gather darkly o’er the lea,
Yet the light of peace remaineth
If thou still abide with me. [Refrain]
