Abide With Me, O Lord - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
Abide with me, O Lord, with me abide;
The dawn is gone and dusk is creeping fast;
All day, you walked along with me, beside;
My sorrows, problems, pain are things of past.
The sun has set and darkness covers land;
The trees and hills are silhouettes in moonlight;
You guided me by holding my right hand;
Half of the earth will soon be under night.
The toil of day has ceased and I must rest;
I must attend to family members' needs;
The joy and warmth of home is always best;
Forgive my sins and bless me for good deeds.
Without your help, Lord, could I've passed the day?
I need your grace to spend night in good sleep;
For all your blessings, Lord, I thank and pray;
You blessed my work and never let me weep.
You raised me up when I had slipped and fell;
The Holy Spirit spoke instead of me;
My guardian angel makes me do so well;
I live my life in righteous sanity.
The tempter tried so many times in vain;
He set up snares and foes to spoil my name;
O Lord, you made a boon out of my bane;
I smile with success and I rise in fame.
All things I do need to be blessed by you;
My daily cross is heavy and scary;
As per your will, help me Lord, things to do;
In your foot-steps, help me my cross, carry.
Lord, never should I ever go astray;
O Good Shepherd, you are my friend and guide;
A better life, I ought to lead your way;
In life and death, O Lord with me abide.
My inward eyes must keep its heaven's gaze;
With pure a soul, I long to you embrace;
Forgive my sins and all of them erase;
Remove the haze and glorify my pace.
