STAND BY ME by CHARLES ALBERT TINDLEY

When the storms of life are raging, stand by me;
When the storms of life are raging, stand by me,
When the world is tossing me like a ship upon the sea;
Lord who rules the wind and water, stand by me.


In the midst of tribulation, stand by me;
In the midst of tribulation, stand by me,
When the host of hell assail and my strength begins to fail,
Lord who never lost a battle stand by me.


In the midst of faults and failures stand by me;
In the midst of faults and failures stand by me,
When I've done the best I can and my friends misunderstand,
Lord who knows all about me, stand by me.


In the midst of persecution, stand by me;
In the midst of persecution, stand by me,
When my foes in war array undertake to stop my way,
Lord who saved Paul and Silas, stand by me.


When I'm growing old and feeble, stand by me,
When I'm growing old and feeble, stand by me,
When my life becomes a burden and I'm nearing chilly Jordan,
Lord the lily of the valley, stand by me.
