About this tab version
Our version of this song has a modulation at the second to last verse. This is especially effective if a band is minimalist and doesn't have fancy guitar pedals or a full blown drum kit to work with. It can be powerful with simply a voice and a guitar. Was this info helpful? Yes No

Abide With Me
[Verse 1]
           C                  F  C G
Abide with me; Fast falls the eventide; 
              C                 F  C G
The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide. 
             Am               F   C    F
When other helpers, fail and comforts flee, 
              C      G           C
Help of the helpless, abide with me.

[Verse 2]
            C               F     C    G
Thou on my head, in early youth didst smile; 
               C                 F     C   G
And, though rebellious, and perverse meanwhile, 
               Am                F   C    F
Thou hast not left me, though I oft left Thee, 
            C        G           C
On to the close Lord, abide with me.

[Verse 3]
             C              F  C    G
I need Thy presence, every passing hour. 
              C                    F C      G
What but Thy grace, can foil the tempter's power? 
             Am                   F   C  F
Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be? 
                   C       G           C
Through cloud and sunshine, abide with me.

[Interlude; Key change to Dmaj]

[Verse 4]
          D                  G   D    A
I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless 
              D                        G D   A
Ills have no weight, tears lose their bitterness 
              Bm                           G  D G
Where is thy sting death? Where grave thy victory? 
            D   A           D
I triumph still, abide with me.

[Verse 5]
                D               G   D    A
Hold Thou Thy cross, before my closing eyes; 
              D                       G   D    A
Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies. 
              Bm                            G D    G
Heav'n's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee; 
             D         A            D
In life, in death, Lord, abide with me.
