Abide, O Dearest Jesus

lake

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

Abide, O dear Redeemer, among us with your Word
And thus now and hereafter true peace and joy afford.

Abide with heavenly brightness among us, precious Light;
Your truth direct and keep us from error’s gloomy night.

Abide with richest blessings among us, bounteous Lord;
Let us in grace and wisdom grow daily through your Word.

Abide with your protection among us, Lord, our Strength,
Lest world and Satan fell us and overcome at length.

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

……………………………………………………………………………Josua Stegmann, 1628
