Tune: Abide with me, fast falls the eventide... 
(Danish:  Vær du mig nær, nu aftnen sænker sig..)

Take comfort in His overruling grace,
when for your life no purpose you may trace,
when circumstances do not smile but frown,
o, rest assured He will not let you down!

Don´t lean on human strength and fickle charm,
for there you won´t find  lasting cure and balm,
your lostness God will use that you may see
the need to learn the terms of Calvary!

When in the darkness you no light can see  (Isa. 50:10)
then blindly to your loving Shepherd flee,
for He´s the Overseer of your soul, (1 Pet. 2:25)
that brings relief and makes you well and whole!

If all goes wrong, that may with us go wrong,
it means that God for fruit in us does long,
for through our dying and our doomed defeat  (2 Cor. 4:10-11)
again He lets us bear sweet ears of wheat!  (Joh. 12:24)

Break Thou the hidden pow´r of sin in me,
as I in Christ already was set free,
that gospel truth Thy Spirit will renew
as fresh as this day´s early morning dew!
