Abide, O dearest Jesus

Abide, O dearest Jesus, among us with thy grace,
that Satan may not harm us, nor we to sin give place.

Abide, O dear Redeemer, among us with thy word,
and thus now and hereafter true peace and joy afford.

Abide with richest blessings among us, bounteous Lord.  
Let us in grace and wisdom grow daily through thy word.

Abide, O faithful Savior, among us with thy love.  
Grant steadfastness, and help us to reach our home above.
