Song background:

(The playback should sound better with headphones.)

I wanted to linger (abide) a bit at certain points in the melody and text to create a sense of trying to stretch, extend, and un-hurry something that is drawing to its end; which created the difficulty of determining how long to linger and not feel rushed, but without also losing the sense of forward flow. The accompaniment for the first verse is intended to reference bells tolling at evening. For the second verse, it shifts to provide more of a walking feel. And for the third verse, it shifts to the pleading of not wanting to be left alone. The portato marks (tenuto mark over a staccato mark) help indicate the non-legato break intended. Abide With Me; ’Tis Eventide by Jason Hunsaker
