200. When the Storms of Life Are Raging

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,
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 host 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 knows 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.
