Here you go. Words and music by Charles A. Tindley:

1.
When the storms of life are raging,
Stand by me (stand by me);
When the storms of life are raging,
Stand by me (stand by me);
When the world is tossing me
Like a ship upon the sea
Thou Who rulest wind and water,
Stand by me (stand by me).

2.
In the midst of tribulation,
Stand by me (stand by me);
In the midst of tribulation,
Stand by me (stand by me);
When the hosts of hell assail,
And my strength begins to fail,
Thou Who never lost a battle,
Stand by me (stand by me).

3.
In the midst of faults and failures,
Stand by me (stand by me);
In the midst of faults and failures,
Stand by me (stand by me);
When I do the best I can,
And my friends misunderstand,
Thou Who knowest all about me,
Stand by me (stand by me).

4.
In the midst of persecution,
Stand by me (stand by me);
In the midst of persecution,
Stand by me (stand by me);
When my foes in battle array
Undertake to stop my way,
Thou Who savèd Paul and Silas,
Stand by me (stand by me).

5.
When I’m growing old and feeble,
Stand by me (stand by me);
When I’m growing old and feeble,
Stand by me (stand by me);
When my life becomes a burden,
And I’m nearing chilly Jordan,
O Thou “Lily of the Valley,”
Stand by me (stand by me).

God bless,
Steve

This song,  composed by the famous self-educated black Methodist preacher, Charles Albert Tindley,  was recorded in the early 1960s by Elvis Presley.  ASCAP now lists the song with Elvis having the composer credits  --  probably because it is his arrangement  --  and owned by the  Auerbach Trust,  the heirs to Hill & Range Songs,  Elvis Presley Music and Gladys Music.

Charles Albert Tindley also is credited with the original words and music of the hymn which became the Civil Rights anthem,  "We Shall Overcome."
