Definition of EVENTIDE: the time of evening : evening
We have a lot of work to do before the morning comes…
One of my favorite hymns is called, “Abide with Me, ‘Tis Eventide”.
It seemed to fit for how I feel lately. Here are the amazing lyrics:
Abide with me; ’tis eventide.The day is past and gone;The shadows of the evening fall;The night is coming on.Within my heart a welcome guest,Within my home abide.
(Chorus)O Savior, stay this night with me;Behold, ’tis eventide.O Savior, stay this night with me;Behold, ’tis eventide.
Abide with me; ’tis eventide.Thy walk today with meHas made my heart within me burn,As I communed with thee.Thy earnest words have filled my soulAnd kept me near thy side.
Abide with me; ’tis eventide,And lone will be the nightIf I cannot commune with theeNor find in thee my light.The darkness of the world, I fear,Would in my home abide.
