New Tune Tuesday: Hymn Stylin'

New Tune Tuesday



I'm trying to learn how to play hymns and sing at the same time. Tricky business. This is my attempt numero uno.

My current favorite hymn: Abide with Me. Lately, I feel like all my thoughts are ending in a question mark. It's a normal, healthy (at least I hope so) part of my Lenten journey; suddenly questioning everything I believe to be true. Anyway, in the midst of this time, I am thinking a lot about the words of Abide with Me.

Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide;
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, oh, abide with me.

I need Thy presence every passing hour;
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter’s pow’r?
Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.
