Down in the darkness, yeah - Stand by meDown in the valley, yeah - Stand by meDon't leave me lonely, yeah - Stand by meOh, Lord, Lord, stand by me
This world is troubled, yeah - Stand by meThis world is broken, yeah - Stand by meI need you to heal me, Lord - Stand by meOh, Lord, Lord, stand by me
(bridge) I know that you'll be there for meI know you'll be my eyes to seeForever find me faithfully, thankfullyThankfully
Be my redeemer, yeah - Stand by meYou'll be my healer, yeah - Stand by meYou'll be my teacher, yeah - Stand by meOh, Lord, Lord, stand by me
In this house, father - Stand by meRecall your name, Lord - Stand by meWe sing your praise, Lord - Stand by meOh, Lord, Lord, stand by me
