Full Text

1 Jesus, Saviour! hear my call,
Sinful tho’ my heart may be;
Thou, my life, my hope, my all,
Lord, abide with me.

2 Thou hast died the lost to save,
Died to set the captive free;
Thou didst triumph o’er the grave,
Lord, abide with me.

3 Fill me with Thy love divine,
Consecrate my life to Thee;
Bend my stubborn will to Thine,
Lord, abide with me.

4 When the shades of death prevail,
Father, let me cling to Thee;
When I pass the gloomy vale,
Lord, abide with me.

5 Then, O then, my raptured soul
Heav’n’s eternal rest shall see;
There, while endless ages roll,
Live and reign with me.
