Lyrics

Abide with us, our Savior,
Nor let Thy mercy cease;
From Satan’s might defend us,
And grant our souls release.

Abide with us, our Savior,
Sustain us by Thy Word,
That we may, now and ever,
Find peace in Thee, O Lord.

Abide with us, our Savior,
Thou light of endless light;
Increase to us Thy blessings,
And save us by Thy might.
