        (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.
