If the Savior Stood Beside Me

    1. If the Savior stood beside me,

    would I do the things I do?

    Would I think of His commandments,

    and try harder to be true?

    Would I follow His example?

    Would I live more righteously

    if I could see the Savior standing nigh,

    watching over me?

    2. If the Savior stood beside me,

    would I say the things I say?

    Would my words be true and kind

    if He was never far away?

    Would I try to share the gospel?

    Would I speak more rev’rently

    if I could see the Savior standing nigh,

    watching over me?

    3. He is always near me,

    though I do not see Him there,

    And because He loves me dearly,

    I am in His watchful care.

    So I’ll be the kind of person

    that I know I’d like to be

    if I could see the Savior standing nigh,

    watching over me.
