Abide With Me (Henry Francis Lyte, 1847)
Rev. Henry Francis Lyte wrote this hymn in 1847, during his last days, as he was dying from tuberculosis. The hymn touched me so much that I decided to transcreate it in Odia, my mother tongue (based on verses 1, 2, 6, 7, and 8). The full English original can be found in the Web: Abide With Me.
