495. Stand by Me

1 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,
thou who rulest the wind and water, stand by me.

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

3 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,
thou who knowest all about me, stand by me.

4 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,
O thou Lily of the Valley, stand by me.
