ABIDE WITH ME
Abide with me for fast falls eventide.
Darkness deepens with alacrity,
Nothing halts the night.
Stay with me while time yet allows,
When other helpers fail,
And other comforts flee.
Allow me to mean the best,
Help where others only helpless seem.
I want to be alone with you.
Though so many things to tell,
One thing sums it right,
One thing huge, deep and great,
Like the sea, my heart embraces you.
You, my love, are all my life today.
Allow my help, I mean to assuage
What ever wrongs cause distress,
Spare your soul from bottom and regret.
When hopeless seems word of day,
I wish to assure, readily predict,
Though this but one moment seem,
It be no moment at all, but infinite,
Happy outcome, your grandfather’s dream,
Favor divine and knowledge at sunrise.
