~To truly abide and adore my Lord means I can press on until He returns, praising Him wholeheartedly! Annie Hawks said,
"I remember well the circumstances under which I wrote the hymn 'Abide with me'. It was a bright June day, and I became so filled with the sense of the nearness of my Master that I began to wonder how anyone could live without Him, in either joy or pain. Suddenly, the words I need Thee every hour, flashed into my mind, and very quickly the thought had full possession of me."
