GUEST POSTER: +Daryl Luedke - Abide, O Dearest Jesus!

This is the prayer that the Lord put on my heart to send you. 

It is a prayer-hymn that I learned in grade school many years ago! It was inspired by the Book of Luke, chapter 24 verse 29.

Abide, O dearest Jesus, among us with Thy grace 
That Satan may not harm us nor we to sin give place.

Abide, O dear Redeemer, among us with Thy Word 
And thus now and hereafter true peace and joy afford.

Abide with heavenly brightness among us, precious Light; 
Thy truth direct and keep us from error's gloomy night.

Abide with richest blessings among us, bounteous Lord; 
Let us in grace and wisdom grow daily through Thy Word.

Abide with Thy protection among us, Lord, our Strength, 
Lest world and Satan fell us and overcome at length.

Abide, O faithful Savior, among us with Thy love; 
Grant steadfastness and help us to reach our home above. 

Thank you, Daryl, for a beautiful submission!
