629. Stand By Me

1 When the storms of life are raging,
stand by me (stand by me);
when the storms of life are raging,
stand by me (stand by me);
when the world is tossing me
like a ship upon the sea,
thou who rulest wind and water,
Ssand by me (stand by me).

2 In the midst of tribulation,
stand by me (stand by me);
in the midst of tribulation,
stand by me (stand by me);
when the hosts of hell assail,
and my strength begins to fail,
thou who never lost a battle,
stand by me (stand by me).

3 In the midst of faults and failures,
stand by me (stand by me);
in the midst of faults and failures,
stand by me (stand by me);
when I've done the best I can,
and my friends misunderstand,
thou who knowest all about me,
stand by me (stand by me).

4 In the midst of persecution,
stand by me (stand by me);
in the midst of persecution,
stand by me (stand by me);
when my foes in war array
undertake to stop my way,
thou who saved Paul and Silas,
stand by me (stand by me).

5 When I’m growing old and feeble,
stand by me (stand by me);
when I’m growing old and feeble,
stand by me (stand by me);
when my life becomes a burden,
and I’m nearing chilly Jordan,
O thou Lily of the Valley,
stand by me (stand by me).
