There's so much going on at Hymnpartial HQ this week that we're taking a break just to rest and regroup. However, with football season reaching a fever pitch (see what we did there) we'd like to share with you an old classic and well-known football anthem, Abide with Me.

Bizarrely, this is a song that has been widely adopted by secular culture in the most unusual ways and for some very odd reasons (and sometimes no reason at all). Why is a song about longing for God to walk with us through death so often sung at unbelievers' funerals? What has it got to do with football? And why did it cause such a stir in relation to the Indian Army in 2020?
