570. When the storms of life are raging, 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 pounding me
like a ship upon the sea,
Lord, who rules 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,
Lord, 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,
Lord, who knowest all about me, stand by me.

4 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.

5 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.
