Abide with Me


Abide with me; fast falls the eventide; 
the darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide.
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.
I heard this hymn today on the Arts channel sung 
by British soloist Lesley Garrett with images of 
soldiers in trenches behind her on large screens.  
The photo I took last weekend as we were on
our way home from Klamath Falls at sunset. 
They seemed to go together.

It is a beautiful hymn and Lesley Garrett is a very fine singer.

Your photo is really good. It would make a lovely card with the words of the hymn beneath it. (Well, just one verse maybe or there wouldn't be room for the photo!)

I remember this song from a long time ago. It has always tuggged at my heartstrings.
