Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

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.
