Abide with Me, #16

Lyrics

Verse 1
Abide with me, my Savior dear,
And soothe this troubled heart,
It makes me glad to have thee near,
And feel how kind thou art.

Chorus
O Master, blessed, good and true,
Let me thy beauty, beauty see,
Thy precious words are ever new,
Dear Christ, abide with me.

Verse 2
I could not keep the narrow way,
If I could walk alone;
Oh, guide my feet thro’ all the day,
My hand hold in thy own.

Verse 3
This world would be a dreary place,
And life a burden long,
Without thy sweet and tender grace,
Which fills our souls with song.
