Abide With Me Lyricse

Rather than ramble about how recently spiritually enriching this song has been, I pray these lyrics and Assad’s lovely voice speaks to you during this Lenten season.

I have not heard an Audrey Assad song or cover that has not meaningfully touched my soul in a special way. Her openness to share her authentic conversion to Catholicism and the gift of her angelic calming voice have reaffirmed my faith in times of trial as well as strengthened my resolve when life is going well.



“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, oh, 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 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


Hold Thou Thy cross 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, in death, o Lord, abide with me

Abide with me, abide with me.”


Until next time,
