Jesus, Lord and precious Savior,
All my comfort and my joy!
Graciously extend Thy favor,
Let Thy Word my soul employ.

Refrain

Jesus, come abide with me,
Let me ever be with Thee.

All I do, O let me ever,
Jesus, in Thy name begin;
Give me success to my endeavor,
Final victory therein.

Refrain

Let my words and thoughts, O Savior,
To Thy praise and glory tend;
Help me, Lord, that I may gather
Treasures that shall never end.

Refrain

When my days on earth are over,
Let me enter into rest.
Bear me home, O blessèd Savior,
When to Thee it seemeth best.
