This video provides the lyrics to the hymnal, "Abide With Me," sung in the Cherokee language. This song is also known as "Hymn #2 - Introduction of Public Worship." The lyrics to this song have also been attributed to another hymnal called "Careless Soul." I had also chosen audio taken from the "Cherokee National Holiday - Gospel Music CD" because of its clarity in pronunciation. I had received a copy of the lyrics along with translation of the lyrics from the book "Cherokee Hymns History." As always, I think it is important to understand the translation as well as hearing the words. Mp3's can be downloaded for free from www.cherokee.org. Enjoy!
