Luke 24: 29 (KJV) But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them. Praise the Lord!

Lyrics
ABIDE WITH ME - by Henry F. Lyte, 1847

(Eb)A(Gm)bide (Bb7)with (Cm)me; (Eb)fast
(Ab)falls the (Cm7)e(Bb7)ven(Eb)tide;
The (Ab)dark(Eb)ness (Ab)deep(Eb)ens;
(Fm7)Lord (Bb)with (Eb)me (F7)a(Bb)bide;
(Eb)When (Gm)oth(Bb7)er (Cm)help(Eb)ers (Ab)fail,
and (C+)com(C7)forts (Fm)flee,
(Bb)Help (Eb)of (Bb7)the (Eb)help(Bb7)less,
(Cm)O (Fm)a(Eb)bide (Bb7)with Eb)me.

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.

I need Thy presence ev'ry passing hour;
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter's pow'r?
Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, O abide with me.

I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness;
Where is death's sting? where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still, if Thou abide with me.

Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes;
Shine through 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. Amen.
