1. Tarry with me, O my Savior,
In my heart and life abide,
Keep me by Thy grace and favor,
Ever near Thy loving side.

Tarry with me, O my Savior,
For I long to have Thee nigh;
By Thy Spirit guide and guard me,
Till I reach my home on high.

2. Tarry with me, O my Savior,
In Thy presence let me rest,
Thou dost know my life and longings,
Thou wilt give me what is best. [Refrain]

3. Tarry with me, O my Savior,
Day is fleeting to its close;
Life without Thee is but dreary,
Filled with bitterness and woes. [Refrain]

4. Tarry with me, O my Savior,
Walk beside me all the way;
In my joy, and in my sadness,
I shall need Thee every day. [Refrain]

Scott, Frederick George. (Montreal, Quebec, April 7, 1861--January 19, 1944, Quebec City). Anglican. Bishop's University (Lennoxville, Que.), B.A., 1881; M.A., 1884; D.C.I., 1901. Pastorates (all in Quebec) at Montreal, 1884-1886; Drummondville, 1887-1896; Quebec, 1896-1933. During his time as Canadian Army chaplain on the Western Front (1914-1919), he formed close ties with thousands of soldiers, whose subsequent dispersal all across Canada ensured a warm reception for his writings, and his message. He published ten volumes of verse, a novel, and The Great War as I Saw It, which was widely influential. --Hugh D. McKellar, DNAH Archives Go to person page >
