1 Walking with Jesus on Emaus way,
Wondrous His words of wisdom;
Sad hearts were yearning,
Love’s fires were burning,
That blest day,
When at last those loved ones know Him,
Ever closer drew they to Him.

Refrain:
Abide Thou with us, the day is far spent,
O Master, with Thee we plead;
And only with Thee our souls are content,
For with Thee is joy indeed.

2 Spent is the day, the night is coming on,
With us abide, O stranger;
Twilight is falling,
Night-winds are calling,
Day is gone,
Tho’ their hearts grow closer to Him,
He was gone ere yet they knew Him. [Refrain]

3 O may we know Him when upon our way
Jesus with us would tarry;
His word believing,
His grace receiving,
That glad day,
When our hearts with love compelling,
He will enter, then, our dwelling. [Refrain]
