40 Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet. 41 Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee? 42 Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was? 43 So there was a division among the people because of him. 44 And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.(KJV)

1. Sun of my soul, Thou Savior dear, 
It is not night if Thou be near. 
Oh, may no earth-born cloud arise 
To hide Thee from Thy servant’s eyes. 

2. When the soft dews of kindly sleep 
My wearied eyelids gently steep, 
Be my last thought how sweet to rest 
Forever on my Savior’s breast. 

3. Abide with me from morn till eve, 
For without Thee I cannot live; 
Abide with me when night is nigh, 
For without Thee I dare not die. 

4. If some poor wandering child of Thine 
Has spurned today the voice divine, 
Now, Lord, the gracious work begin; 
Let him no more lie down in sin. 

5. Watch by the sick; enrich the poor 
With blessings from Thy boundless store; 
Be every mourner’s sleep tonight, 
Like infant’s slumbers, pure and light. 

6. Come near and bless us when we wake, 
Ere through the world our way we take, 
Till in the ocean of Thy love 
We lose ourselves in heaven above.
