Abide With Me Lyrics in Description Christian Hymns playlist: http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=BD1B04EAC0152F4B 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. Swift to its close ebbs out lifes little day; Earths 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 every passing hour. What but Thy grace can foil the tempters power? Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be? Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me. Words: Hen­ry F. Lyte, 1847. Music: Eventide, Wil­liam H. Monk, 1861. Mrs. Monk de­scribed the set­ting: "This tune was writ­ten at a time of great sor­row—when to­ge­ther we watched, as we did dai­ly, the glo­ries of the set­ting sun. As the last gold­en ray fad­ed, he took some pa­per and pen­ciled that tune which has gone all over the earth." Henry Francis Lyte (1793-1847) William H. Monk (1823-1889) Lyte was in­spired to write this hymn as he was dy­ing of tu­ber­cu­lo­sis; he fin­ished it the Sun­day he gave his fare­well ser­mon in the church he served so ma­ny years. The next day, he left for Ita­ly to re­gain his health. He didnt make it, though—he died in Nice, France, three weeks af­ter writ­ing these words. Here is an ex­cerpt from his fare­well ser­mon: "O breth­ren, I stand here among you to­day, as alive from the dead, if I may hope to im­press it upon you, and in­duce you to pre­pare for that sol­emn hour which must come to all, by a time­ly ac­quaint­ance with the death of Christ." choir Easter
