If the Savior Stood Beside Me

Print Share
    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.
