Stand By Me ...


“When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we’ll see
No, I won’t be afraid
Oh, I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me

So darlin’, darlin’
Stand by me, oh, stand my me
Oh stand, stand by me
Stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the mountain should crumble to the sea
I won’t cry, I won’t cry
No, I won’t shed a tear
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me

And darlin’, darlin’
Stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand now, stand by me
Stand by me

Darlin’, darlin’
Stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand now, stand by me
Stand by me
Whenever you’re in trouble, won’t you stand by me?
Oh, stand by me
Won’t you stand now?
Oh, stand, stand by me”
       ~ “Stand by Me”
      ~ originally performed by Ben E. King
                            ~ 1938-2015
                 ~ released April 1961
      ~ written by Ben. E. King,
             Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller

According to Ben E. King, the title is derived from, and was inspired by, a spiritual written by Sam Cooke and J.W. Alexander called “Stand by Me Father,” recorded by The Soul Stirrers with Johnnie Taylor singing lead. The third line of the second verse of the former work derives from Psalm 46:2-3.

There have been more than 400 recorded versions of the song, performed by many artists. It was featured on the soundtrack of the 1986 film “Stand by Me.”

Whitetails In The Winter Mist ...

Buck In The Falling Snow ...

“… I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief …
For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.”
