Stand By Me by: C.A. Tindley
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.
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,
Thou who never lost a battle, Stand by me.
This old hymn from the early 1900's, is so relevant for the times we now live in. These first two verses of the hymn speaks volumes. So, when I go through seemingly unthinkable circumstances, and think I cannot go on, I can assuredly call on the name of Jesus Christ, and God the Father, to Stand by me.
