859. Tarry with Me

1 Now the shadows slowly lengthen,
Soon the evening time will come;
With Thy grace, O Savior, strengthen,
By Thy help I would go home.

Refrain:
Tarry with me, O my Savior,
Tarry with me through the night;
I am lonely, Lord, without Thee,
Tarry with me through the night.

2 Thou art with me, O my Savior,
On Thy bosom calm I rest;
Thine anointed, Lord, Thou savest,
Now I know Thou givest rest. [Refrain]

3 Upward as through trackless ether,
With angelic wings to rise;
Where the ransomed spirits gather
In our home of paradise. [Refrain]

4 Tarry with me, O my Savior,
Lift the veil of mortal night;
Let the fields of verdant glory
Burst upon my eager sight. [Refrain]
