When I Needed A Neighbor Where You There

Hi Guest,

Here is what I could find:

1.
When I needed a neighbour
Were you there, were you there?
When I needed a neighbour
Were you there?
And the creed and the colour
And the name won't matter
Were you there?

2.
I was hungry and thirsty
Were you there, were you there?
I was hungry and thirsty
Were you there?
And the creed and the colour
And the name won't matter
Were you there?

3.
I was cold, I was naked
Were you there, were you there?
I was cold, I was naked
Were you there?
And the creed and the colour
And the name won't matter
Were you there?

4.
When I needed a shelter
Were you there, were you there?
When I needed a shelter
Were you there?
And the creed and the colour
And the name won't matter
Were you there?

5.
When I needed a healer
Were you there, were you there?
When I needed a healer
Were you there?
And the creed and the colour
And the name won't matter
Were you there?

6.
Wherever you travel
I'll be there, I'll be there.
Wherever you travel
I'll be there.
And the creed and the colour
And the name won't matter
I'll be there.

May God be with you and your family in this difficult time.

God bless,
Steve

I came across your message while searching for other lyrics. I want to offer my condolences and further information.

This hymn was written by Sydney Carter who is represented by Stainer & Bell in Britain

I had the pleasure of meeting him on a Canadian tour about 20 yrs ago, sadly he too has passed away. I hope you find the resources you need, and find comfort in the prayers of others in your time of need.
