502 ~ Sun of My Soul


Sun of my soul, O Savior dear! It is not night if Thou be near; O may no earth-born cloud arise To hide Thee from Thy servant's eyes.


When soft the dews of kindly sleep My weary eyelids gently steep Be my last thought; how sweet to rest Forever on my Savior's breast!


Abide with me from morn till eve, For without Thee I cannot live; Abide with me when night is nigh, For without Thee I dare not die.


Be near and bless me when I wake, Ere through the world my way I take; Till in the ocean of Thy love I lose myself in heaven above.
