• Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent.' mp
BIDE with me: fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide:
mp 8 Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes,
Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies; mf Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee:
In life and death, O Lord, abide with me.
[May be sung to 'AURELIA,' No. 454 ; or ‘WORDSWORTH,' No. 470.]
This is the day which the Lord hath made ; we will rejoice and be glad in it.'
On thee the high and lowly,
Through ages joined in tune,
To the great God Triune. m 2 On thee, at the creation,
The light first had its birth; mf On thee, for our salvation,
Christ rose from depths of earth;
The Spirit sent from heaven:
A triple light was given. m 3 Thou art a cooling fountain
In life's dry dreary sand;
We view our promised land.
A day thou art of love,
From earth to things above.
The heavenly manna falls;
The silver trumpet calls,
With pure and radiant beams,
With soul-refreshing streams. m 5 New graces ever gaining
From this our day of rest,
To spirits of the blest.
To Father, and to Son;
To Thee, blest Three in One.
