Just Another Melodic Monday - Abide With Me

Having taught about "the armour of God" from Ephesians 6 on Remembrance Sunday, it seems right to share a hymn today that reminds us of the faithfulness of the Lord and the security we find only in Him.  "Abide with me" was written in 1847 by Henry Francis Lyte but this version, performed by Ross Martin and David Niemi, features the updated tune by Indelible Grace.
  1. I need Thy presence every passing hour;
    What but Thy grace can foil the tempter’s power?
    Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
    Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.
