Abide with Me is a classic hymn that is easy to play on the guitar because it has only seven different melody notes. This PDF provides the melody notes, chords, chord diagrams, and the first stanza of the hymn.
This PDF also provides a new feature that makes playing the melody simple: circled numbers above each note that tell you exactly where to play each note! All notes are played on the fret of first string matching the circled number except for the notes with circled numbers 2.1 and 2.3, which are played on the first and third frets of the second string, respectively.
Here is an audio mp3 of the melody of the song. You can play along with the audio to learn the melody. You can also practice strumming the chords as the accompaniment to the song while the melody is being played!
