SAVIOUR, abide with us!

The day is now far gone:
We would obtain a blessing thus,

By coming to Thy throne.
We have not reached that land,

That happy land as yet,
Where holy angels round Thee stand,

Whose sun can never set.
Our sun is sinking now,

Our day is almost o'er ;
O Sun of Righteousness, do Thou
Shine on us evermore !
