#77: Sun of My Soul

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)


Sun of my soul, Thou Savior dear,

It is not night if Thou be near;

O may no earth-born cloud arise

To hid Thee from thy servant’s eyes!


When the soft dews of kindly sleep

My weary eyelids gently step,

Be my last thought, how sweet to rest

Forever on my Savior’s breast!


Abide with me from morn till eve,

For without Thee I cannot live’

Abide with me when night is nigh,

For without Thee I dare not die.


Be near to bless me when I wake,

Ere thru the world my way I take;

Abide with me till in Thy love

I lose myself in heav’n above.
