hymn of the month

november hymn || abide with me

abide with me: fast falls the eventide
the darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide
when other helpers fail and comforts flee
help of the helpless, oh, abide with me.

swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day;
earth’s joys grow dim, its glories pass away
change and decay in all around i see;
oh, thou who changest not, abide with me.

i need thy presence every passing hour
what but thy grace can foil the tempter’s power?
who like thyself my guide and strength can be?
though cloud and sunshine, oh, abide with me.

i fear no foe with thee at hand to bless
ills have no weight and tears no bitterness
where is death’s sting? where, grave, thy victory?
i triumph still if thou abide with me.

hold thou thy cross before my closing eyes
shine through the gloom and point me to the skies.
heaven’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee:
in life, in death, oh Lord, abide with me.

through cloud and sunshine, He is the same, and sometimes that’s all that gets me through the day.

have a lovely november, folks!
