A funeral hymn for comfort in upsetting times

Abide With Me

Abide with me:
Fast falls the even tide;
The darkness deepens:
Lord, with me abide!
When other helpers fail,
And comforts flee,
Help of the helpless,
O abide with me!Swift to its close
Ebbs out life’s little day;
Earth’s joys grow dim;
Its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all
Around I see;
O Thou who changest
Not, abide with me!I need Thy presence
Ev’ry passing hour:
What but Thy grace can
Foil the tempter’s pow’r?
Who like Thyself my guide
And stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine,
O abide with me!

Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, we are having to change the way we are running. We would appreciate where possible to do funeral arrangements over the phone. We are aware this is not ideal, neither is it the way we wish to be operating. Understandably due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are adopting these methods to be as compliant as possible with government guidance. This will also apply to the manner in how we are conducting the funerals, we will ensure to do our utmost to remain highly respectful as usual, with as many of our traditions still in place.

For the safety of our staff and yourselves, we are adapting daily to the guidelines set by the government and local authorities.

For any queries or concerns please do contact any of our offices or general enquires on 01252 616431.
