1 Make thine abode with me,
Be thou my guest;
Thou art my portion here,
Thou art my rest;
Tho’, like a summer day,
Fond hopes may fade away,
Jesus, my heart can say,
Thou knowest best.

2 Why should I doubt and fear
When thou art mine?
How can I faint or fall,
My hand in thine?
Light of my pilgrim way,
My soul’s eternal day,
Help me to watch and pray,
Lord, keep me thine.

3 Tho’ hedged on every side
My path may be,
Gladly I follow on,
Trusting in thee;
Love, on celestial wings,
Peace to my spirit brings,
While faith looks up and sings,
Glory to thee.

4 Thine, tho’ my days be long,
Saviour divine,
Thine, when their light shall fade,
No more to shine;
O thou unchanging Word,
Thou from all time adored—
Living or dying, Lord,
Still I am thine.
