Hymn:                                                 Prayers
Abide with me; fast falls the eventide:
The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide;            Hymn:
When other helpers fail, and comforts flee,           And did those feet in ancient times
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.                Walk upon England’s mountains green?
                                                      And was the Holy Lamb of God
Swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day;        On England’s pleasant pastures seen?
Earth’s joys grow dim, its glories pass away;         And did the countenance divine
Change and decay in all around I see:                 Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
O thou who changest not, abide with me.               And was Jerusalem builded here
                                                      Among those dark satanic mills?
I need thy presence every passing hour;
What but thy grace can foil the tempter’s power?      Bring me my bow of burning gold!
Who like thyself my guide and stay can be?            Bring me arrows of desire!
Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.      Bring me my spear! O clouds, unfold!
                                                      Bring me my chariot of fire!
I fear no foe with thee at hand to bless;             I will not cease from mental fight,
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness.         Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand,
Where is death’s sting? Where grave thy victory?      Till we have built Jerusalem
I triumph still, if thou abide with me.               In England’s green and pleasant land.

Hold thou thy cross before my closing eyes;
                                                      Committal and Blessing
Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies:
Heaven’s morning breaks, and the earth’s vain
                                                      Closing Music: Simply the Best – Tina Turner
shadows flee;
In life, in death, O lord, abide with me.
