“Right beside Me,” New Era, Nov. 2005, 45
My favorite hymn is one of peace and serenity, which eases the more difficult times in my life. This hymn is “Abide with Me; ’Tis Eventide” (Hymns, no. 165). Each time I sing this hymn I can imagine my Savior, Jesus Christ, right beside me—walking, praying, teaching. Memorizing this hymn has helped me remember that although the shadows of gloom come, we are loved, for a new dawn awaits us. He is there, if only we ask.
