10. Abide with Me (Dietrich)

1. Abide with me; I need Thee every day,
To lead me on thro’ all the weary way;
When storms surround, and only clouds I see,
Lord, be my comfort, and abide with me.

Abide with me from morn till eve,
For without Thee I cannot live;
Abide with me when night is nigh,
For without Thee, I dare not die.

2. Be with me, Lord, where’er my path may lead;
Fulfill Thy word, supply my every need;
Help me to live each day more close to Thee,
And, oh, dear Lord, I pray, abide with me. [Refrain]

3. Abide with me, my Lord, and when at last,
This earth and all its weary cares are past;
I’ll pray no more that Thou abide with me,
For then, at last, I shall abide with Thee. [Refrain]
