As the shadows fall

As the shadows fall,
turn our thoughts and minds to thee.
Help us now to strive for Peace,
and find our rest in thee.

Father, please watch over us
as the evening round us flows.
Lord, accept our supplications
and us in our repose.

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.
