198. 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 tossing me like a ship upon the sea;
thou who rulest 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 do the best I can, and my friends misunderstand,
thou 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 battle array undertake to stop my way,
thou 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,
O thou Lily of the Valley, stand by me.
