"STAND BY ME"

Verse 1
Thinking, of all You've done for me
And how Your Love has helped me clearly see.
My broken heart, only You could mend.
You have always loved me without end.
'Cause You're always right beside me,
And You've never failed to guide me
And I just want to tell you, I love You.

Chorus
'Cause You're always, -always by my side.
[alternate: Lord, You're always, always by my side.]
You pull me through the darkness of this night.
So please, oh please,
I need You to stand, by me.

Verse 2
When I'm down, defeated, in despair,
Thinking 'bout the times that I just turned and walked away.
I don't see, how I can go on.
There were so many things that all went wrong.
But all I have to do is call Your Name,
You've never failed me.
I know I need Your Love to pull me through.

[Repeat Chorus]

Verse 3
All my love to You I give,
I'll walk with You through every passing day.
To You, for ever I'll be true.
Though I may fall, I'll just call Your Name.
Oh, You've kept me through the years,
And you dried away my tears.
Stand by me and help me carry -on.

[Repeat Chorus]

Break:

Please [Oh please]
I need you to stand;
I need you to stand by me.
