Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: I need Thy presence here, Lord, stand by me, In times of joy or fear, Lord, stand by me; Who can my heart assure, My soul set free? My hope and peace is this: Lord, stand by me.
Verse 2: With Thy strength I’m secure, Lord, stand by me; Each trial I can endure, Lord, stand by me; By Thy redeeming love, Ever I’ll be Thy trusting, grateful child; Lord, stand by me.
Verse 3: As long as life shall last, Lord, stand by me; Till sin and death are past, Lord, stand by me; Till heaven’s gates appear, Thy face I see, And evermore I’m Thine; Lord, stand by me.
