abide with me lyrics – hayley westenra

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 life’s little day;
earth’s joys grow dim; its glories p*ss away;
change and decay in all around i see;
o thou who changest not, abide with me.

hold thou thy cross before my closing eyes;
shine through the gloom and point me to the skies.
heaven’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee;
in life, in death, o lord, abide with me.
