Tarry with Me

Date recorded: February 10, 2012

Words by: Caroline Sprague Smith

Music by: Knowles Shaw

Tarry with me, O my Savior,
For the day is passing by;
See the shades of evening gather,
And the night is drawing nigh.

Deeper, deeper grow the shadows,
Paler now the glowing west;
Swift the night of death advances;
Shall it be the night of rest?

Tarry with me, O my Savior,
Lay my head upon Thy breast
Till the morning; then awake me,
Morning of eternal rest.


Tarry with me, blessed Savior;
Leave me not till morning light;
For I’m lonely here without Thee;
Tarry with me through the night.
