If the Savior Stood Beside Me (DeFord)


If the Savior Stood Beside Me (DeFord)

Music for Children, Submitted Music (1992-1997)

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?

 

If the Savior stood beside me, would I say the things I say?

Would my words be true and kind if he were 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?

 

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.
