Abide With Me
W. H. Monk


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 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 tempter's power?
Who like thyself my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, O abide with me!

I fear no foe, with thee at hand to bless
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness
Where is death's sting? where, grave thy victory
I triumph still, if thou abide with me!

Reveal thyself 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 and death, O Lord, abide with me!

184 Abide With Me
W. H. Monk


Nayuglanga taakhinialengman
Jesus ilagilunga unukpan.
Allat tamangmik kimakpagmannga
ilvit Atanek ikayuglunga.

Inunigalu nunguinalengman,
nuna, ilvit, nungutihunguyan.
Iyyuhitak aulaningnangmata
aulayuinavin nayuglanga.

Piyakhagigpkin uvluk taman.
naamakuvlunga Tupilak kaitpan.
Allakun ikayuktikhainama
amegiyima ilagilunga.

Ilvit uvamnitillunga ilaa
ekhigiyunaitatka tamaita.
Humillika ekhinaektulli
Jesus nayuleguvin uvami.
