Full Text

1 Without Thee, my Saviour, I nothing can do;
I strive, but I fail to be faithful and true;
My strength is but weakness, and faint is my heart,
Unless Thou art nigh me Thy grace to impart.

Refrain:
Abide with me ever, O Saviour, abide,
My Refuge in danger, in darkness, my Guide.

2 Without Thee, my Saviour, I struggle in vain;
I sink ‘neath the wave with no arm to sustain;
But when Thou art with me to strengthen my soul,
I cling to the Rock though the waves o’er me roll. [Refrain]

3 Without Thee, my Saviour, I cannot prevail
When foes of my soul with their weapons assail;
But when Thou art with me to gird me with might,
I march to the battle, and win in the fight. [Refrain]
