LYRICS

When the road is long and hard
When I do not know the way
When I’m cold and look for comfort
At the closing of the day
When I need a hand to guide me
A strength that will not fail
My friend my friend is standing close to me

When I thirst for truth and justice
When I long for what is right
When I feel my health is failing
When I dread cold death’s night
When I feel my life lacks meaning
When I know I can’t go on
My Lord my Lord is standing close to me

When I see my neighbour’s need
But I look the other way
When I feel so lost so helpless
When I can’t find words to pray
When I see hatred and division
A world crying out for peace
Jesus Jesus is standing close to me
