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
There's a "Little House On the Prairie" episode in which Hester Sue sang an additional verse:

When my body's racked with pain, stand by me;
When my body's racked with pain, stand by me;
When my heart is filled with fear, and my eyes are filled with tears,
Thou who loves, and Thou who cares, stand by me.

In Little House on the Prairie, episode Mortal Mission:
At the very end when the anthrax disease is defeated, Hester Sue (played by Ketty Lester) sings a shortened version of this hymn. She sang it so beautifully. The verses are as follows:

When the storm of life are raging, stand by me
When the storm of life are raging, stand by me
When the world is tossin me
Like a ship out on the sea
Thou who rule both wind and water
Stand by me

When my body’s racked with pain, stand by me
When my body’s racked with pain, stand by me
When my heart is filled with fear
And my eyes are filled with tears
Thou who love and thou who cares
Stand by me

Hi Steadfast,
For the benefit of all, here is a live recording of
Tennessee Ernie Ford's heartfelt version

No disrespect intended to the talent of Elvis Presley, or anyone else, but in my opinion, Tennessee Ernie Ford did a more heartfelt version of this song than any other I have heard.

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

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.
