The Soul Stirrers - Stand By Me Father

Oh Father, You've been my friend
Now that I'm in trouble
Stand by me to the end, oh Lord
I want You to stand by, stand by

Well, all of my money and my friends are gone
Lord, I'm in a mean world
And I'm so all alone, oh Lord
I need You, Jesus, stand by, stand by

Well, they tell me
That Samson killed in ancient times
I know that You helped him kill
Ten thousand Philistines, oh Lord
Whoa, I need You, stand by, stand by

Here's another thing
They tell me that they put Daniel
Down in the lion's den
I know You went down there, Father
You free Daniel once again

That's why I said, oh Lord
Do me like You did Daniel
And stand by, stand by

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, oh

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

When I'm sick, Father
Stand by me
When the doctor walk away from my bedside
Stand by me, Father

When it seem like I don't have a friend
I wonder will You be my friend?
Stick closer than my brother
Stand by

Oh Father, You've been my friend
Now that I'm in trouble
Stand by me to the end, oh Lord
