Stunning Performance Of Classic Hymn 'Abide With Me'

Check out this stunning performance from Nathan Pacheco of the classic hymn ‘Abide With Me.’

“Abide with me: fast falls the eventide; the darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide.
When other helpers fail, and comforts flee, help of the helpless, oh 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, oh thou who changest not, abide with me”

What a wonderful music video! Nathan Pacheco, who is a classically trained tenor, sings the different parts in the hymn, and the blending of his harmonies sounds so lovely. And the scenery in the music video is also beautiful, with him singing the hymn while surrounded by so many candles.

The hymn ‘Abide With Me’ was written by Scottish Anglican cleric Henry Francis Lyte. The lyrics are a prayer for God to stay with the speaker throughout life and in death. It was written by Henry Lyte in 1847 as he was dying from tuberculosis. And it is most often sung to the tune ‘Eventide’ by English organist William Henry Monk.

When it comes to Nathan Pacheco, this talented singer, has a passion for reaching out and uplifting people through music. He has been featured globally in live performances, including touring the United States, Canada, and Mexico with Yanni; performing with Latin singing sensation Olga Tañon; touring England, Scotland, and Wales with Katherine Jenkins and the National Symphony Orchestra; performing for Prince Charles in conjunction with the British Forces Foundation and the USO; and performing with orchestras and symphonies around the US.  

We hope that you enjoyed listening to Nathan Pacheco’s rendition of the hymn ‘Abide With Me’ today, and the music was able to uplift your spirits and bring you some joy.
