Will You Stand with Me begins with the truth that “Anyone can take the wheel when the see is calm and the coast is clear.” But who do we become when the “sea gets rough and the chips are down and the gig is up”? This is a song of gratitude for those who stand with us and a song of challenge that we might stay strong as we accompany each other in difficult days.

Lyrics

Anyone can take the wheel
When the sea is calm and the coast is clear
Anyone can hold the reigns
If the road is straight and the way is plain
Anyone can stay the course
When they’re loved the most

But who are you when the sea gets rough
When the chips are down and the gig is up?
Who are you when the waves crash ‘round
In a tempest storm with the compass down?

Will you stand with me when the world goes dark
And the road is thin, will you let me in
Will you be the spark?

Who are you when the sky falls down
When betrayal calls, when you’re on the ground?
Who are you when there’s little left
And the lies swirl round and you doubt yourself?

Will you stand with me when the world goes dark
And the road is thin, will you let me in
Will you be the spark?
Will you be the spark?

Anyone can take the wheel
When the sea is calm and the coast is clear
But who are you
Before the light appears?
