VERSE ONE:When the times get so weary and the days seem so long.
When the night owl sits in the trees.
When the silence is louder than the clock that is ticking.
I want someone I can trust to stand,yes, to stand by me.
Stand by me, Dear Friend, stand by me, when I am weary.
When the night moon is shining down on me.
When the quiet starts to ring and wakes the night birds in the distance.
I want my friend,yes my friend, to stand by me.
VERSE TWO: When my time is approaching, and my sight is dimming.
When my light is falling down on me.
When I look in the distance and the angels are coming.
I want my friend, yes my friend to stand by me.
