Abide with me

	  C G         Am  Em   Dm        G   C 
1. A-bide with me, fast falls the eventide. 
    C   Dm  C    F  C     G          Am D G 
    The darkness deepens, Lord, with me a-bide. 
    C    E     Am Em    Dm        A        Dm 
    When other helpers  fail, and comforts flee, 
    G    C  G   C   E     Am  Dm  C    G    C 
    help of the helpless, oh, a - bide with me! 
 
   C G        Am Em    Dm    G       C 
2. I need thy presence every passing hour! 
    C    Dm  C   F     C   G        Am  D     G 
    What but Thy grace can foil the tempter's pow'r? 
    C   E       Am    Em Dm        A        Dm 
    Who like Thyself  my guide and stay can be? 
    G       C     G   C  E      Am  Dm  C    G    C 
    Through cloud and sunshine, oh, a - bide with me ! 
 
   C     G       Am    Em   Dm         G      C 
3. Swift to it's close ebbs out life's little day. 
    C       Dm   C    F    C    G       Am   D G 
    Earth's joys grow dim, it's glories pass a-way. 
    C      E     Am  Em  Dm  A        Dm 
    Change and decay in  all around I see. 
    G C    G   C   E    Am   Dm  C    G    C 
    O Thou who changest not, a - bide with me ! 
 
 
   C   G       Am     Em Dm     G       C 
4. Not a brief glance I  beg, a passing word. 
    C   Dm C    F        C    G   Am D       G 
    But as Thou dwell'st with Thy disciples, Lord, 
    C E       Am Em Dm       A        Dm 
    Familiar, condescending, patient, free. 
    G    C   G  C E      Am  Dm  C    G    C 
    Come not to sojourn, but a - bide with me! 
 
   C    G   Am Em      Dm     G       C 
5. Come not in terror, as the King of kings, 
    C   Dm   C   F     C    G       Am  D   G 
    But kind and good, with healing in  Thy wings. 
    C     E       Am    Em Dm        A     Dm 
    Tears for all woes, a  heart for every plea. 
    G     C      G  C  E     Am   Dm  C    G    C 
    Come, Friend of sinners, thus a - bide with me! 
 
   C    G  Am Em       Dm   G           C 
6. Thou on my head in every youth didst smile. 
    C   d      C F  C     G      a     D   G 
    And though rebellious and perverse meanwhile, 
    C    E    Am  Em       Dm     A      Dm 
    Thou hast not left me, oft as I left Thee. 
    G  C  G   C      E Am    Dm  C    G    C 
    On to the close, O Lord, a - bide with me. 
 
   C G       Am   Em   Dm      G       C 
7. I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless. 
    C    Dm   C  F       C   G        Am D  G 
    Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness. 
    C     E          Am     Em     Dm         A  Dm 
    Where is death's sting? Where, grave, thy victory? 
   G C  G    C      E  Am   Dm  C    G    C 
   I triumph still, if thou a - bide with me! 
 
   C    G        Am    Em Dm      G       C 
8. Hold thou thy cross be-fore my closing eyes. 
    C     Dm      C   F      C   G     Am    D   G 
    Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies. 
   C        E       Am      Em  Dm           A       Dm 
   Heav'n's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee. 
    G  C     G  C      E Am    Dm  C    G    C 
    In life, in death, O Lord, a - bide with me!
