46 SONGS OF THE SOLDIERS AND SAILORS.
58. SOLDIER'S FAREWELL.
How can I bear to leave thee?
One parting kiss I give thee;
And then, whate'er befalls me,
I go where honor calls me,
Farewell, farewell, my own true love, Farewell, farewell, my owTn true love.
59. NEARER, MY GOD, TO THEE.
Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee;
E'en tho' it be a cross that raiseth me.
Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee.
Tho' like a wanderer, the sun gone down, Darkness be over me, my rest a stone; Yet in my dreams I'd be nearer, my God, to Thee. Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee.
60. 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 fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless; Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness. Where is death's sting; where, grave, thy victory? I triumph still, if Thou abide with me.
