Verse 1
Oh, Father You've been my friend
Now that I'm in trouble
Stand by me to the end, oh, oh
I want You to stand by, stand by
Verse 2
Well, all of my money and my friends are gone
God, I'm in a mean world
And I'm so all alone, oh, oh
I need You Jesus, stand by, stand by
Verse 3
Well, they tell me that
Samson killed in ancient times
I know that You helped
Him kill 10,000 Philistines, oh
Whoa I need You, stand by, stand by
Verse 4
Here's another thing
They tell me that they put Daniel
Down in the lion's den
I know You went down there, Father
Verse 5
You feed Daniel once again
That's why I said
Do me like You did Daniel
And stand by, stand by
Verse 6
Well, sometimes I feel like
The weight of the world is on my shoulders
And it's all in vain
When I begin to feel weak along the way
You come and You give me strength again
Verse 7
The Hebrew children have been in fire
Ten times hotter that it ought to be
Just like You delivered them, Father
I know You can deliver me, oh Lord
I'm calling You Jesus, stand by, stand by
Verse 8
When I'm sick, Father, stand by
When they doctor walk away from my bedside
Stand by me father
When it seem like I don't have a friend
I wonder would You be my friend
Stand closer, stand by
Verse 9
