What are we listening to?


I have a special prayer request today. The lovely lady who began this study blog years ago is in need of our prayers and thoughts. Please read Tonya's post here: http://hillbillyquiltshop.blogspot.com/2016/10/the-post-before-post-aka-family-update.html and pray with me for her. If you have time to leave her a note of encouragement on her blog, I hope you will. Just click the link and it will take you there. Let her know that you are in prayer for her situation.

I re-discovered an old hymn that has meant much to me in the past. I hope that it is a blessing to you today. Here are the words....a lovely rendition of the song is below.

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).

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).

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).

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 sav├Ęd Paul and Silas,
Stand by me (stand by me).

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).
