When the night has come and the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see
No, I won't be afraid, oh, I won't be afraid
Just as long as You stand, stand by me

Oh, sweet Jesus, stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, Lord, stand, stand by me, stand by me

If the sky that we look upon should tumble and fall
And the mountains should crumble to the sea
I won't cry, I won't cry, no, I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

Oh, my sweet Lord, won't You stand by me, oh, stand by me?
When I'm in trouble stand, stand by me, stand by me

I need somebody to help me now
Stand by me

Oh, sweet Jesus, stand by me, oh, stand by me
When I'm in trouble stand by me, stand by me

Oh, sweet Jesus, stand by me, please, stand by me
Oh, when I need a friend won't You stand by me?
Oh, won't You stand by me, stand by me?

When I need a friend in the hour of darkness
Stand by me
