"Abide, O Dearest Jesus" by Josua Stegmann, 1628 Translated by August Crull, 1845-1923 Text From: THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941) 1. Abide, O dearest Jesus, Among us with Thy grace That Satan may not harm us Nor we to sin give place. 2. Abide, O dear Redeemer, Among us with Thy Word And thus now and hereafter True peace and joy afford. 3. Abide with heavenly brightness Among us, precious Light; Thy truth direct and keep us From error's gloomy night. 4. Abide with richest blessings Among us, bounteous Lord; Let us in grace and wisdom Grow daily through Thy Word. 5. Abide with Thy protection Among us, Lord, our Strength, Lest world and Satan fell us And overcome at length. 6. Abide, O faithful Savior, Among us with Thy love; Grant steadfastness and help us To reach our home above.This text was converted to ascii format for Project Wittenberg by Cindy A.
