Stand By Me, Jesus

Stand By Me
King ben e.

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
No, I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me

So darling, darling, (sing:Jesus, Jesus)
Stand by me,
Oh, stand by me
Oh, stand,
Stand by me
Stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the mountains should crumble in 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

Laughing Jesus :)

See video with the standard words in June 27 post.

I heard this song in the grocery today, and remembered the comfort of standing by someone, and of being stood by. I like lovesongs about Jesus, so I replaced "darling" with "Jesus".

I love the change you made! And now the tune with the new words is stuck in my head, but I can think of worse things to have there. Thanks! :)
