Lyrics from Relief Society Song Book, 1919, no. 57

1. 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, O abide with me!

2. 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;
O Thou, who changest not, abide with me!

3. Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes;
Shine thro’ the gloom and point me to the skies;
Heav’n’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me!
