669 ( Caroline Smith

Tarry with me, O, my Saviour,

For the day is passing by;

See the shades of ev'ning gather,

And the night is drawing nigh.

Many friends were gathered round me

In the bright days of the past;

But the grave has closed above them,

And I linger here at last.

Deeper, deeper grow the shadows;

Paler now the glowing west;

Swift the night of death advances —

Shall it be the night of rest?

Feeble, trembling, fainting, dying,

Lord, I cast myself on Thee;

Tarry with me through the darkness;

While I sleep, still watch by me.

Tarry with me, O my Saviour!

Lay my head upon Thy breast

'Til the morning; then awake me —

Morning of eternal rest!
