Dr. Theodore L. Cuyler - late 19th Century

from My Life and Sacred Songs, pages 56-57:

One of the many instances of the power of this hymn has been recorded by Dr. Theodore L. Cuyler : " During my active pastorate I often got better sermons from my people than I ever gave them. I recall now a most touching and sublime scene that I once witnessed in the death-chamber of a noble woman who had suffered for many months from an excruciating malady. The end was drawing near. She seemed to be catching a foregleam of the glory that awaited her. With tremulous tones she began to recite Henry Lyte's matchless hymn, ' Abide with me ! Fast falls the eventide.'
