He has been living through the pages of our time
Known as a true man, pure and sublime
Comes from the earth and out of the skies
From the four corners of the compass and into our lives

He is followed, he who is true
To what there is to be believed in, to the spirit of you
Comes from the day and out of the night
It's in all things natural, it's in all things right

Oh sometimes, it's just not that easy
Oh sometimes, I got to call you, call you

Stand beside me, God, stand beside me
Stand before me and behind me
So I can follow in love

And it all sails so smoothly with a prayer at each hand
We all carry our stones, our good books
On the Holy ground, we stand true to the day, true to the night
It's got to be natural, it's got to be right

Oh sometimes, it's still not that easy
No, sometimes, I'm not the man I think I am
Feel I am, hope I am, know I am

Stand beside me, stand beside me
Stand before me and behind me
So I can be true, so I can be true to my word

Stand beside me, stand beside me
Stand before me, stand beside me
