Jesus, Stand by Me

by Jarvis Ottum

I know Jesus will stand by me when I need him.
I know if I can’t get up, He will offer His hand.

If I should need a shoulder to rest on, He will be that shoulder.
If I ask, He will wipe away a tear that swells from my eye and give me hope.

All I have to say is stand by me, and He’ll be there.
All I have to say is Jesus, show me the way, and He will guide me.

Blessed is the Holy Spirit, for He watches over me.
Blessed is the son of God, for He is the light that leads me.

Thank you, Jesus, I’m always grateful for Your help!
Thank you, Jesus, I love you!

Amen, amen, I say to Him, make me a great Christian.
Amen, amen, I say to Him, help me follow in your ways.

Amen!
