Thread Name: Ly/Chds Req. Stand by Me-Gospel
Subject: Lyr Add: LORD, STAND BY ME (Rev. Gary Davis)
A song of this title is listed in the African American songbook from the US Episcopal Church, LIFT EVERY VOICE AND SING. (Joe Offer has that one.)

Rev. Gary Davis' "Lord, Stand By Me" is HERE (thanks Masato). I bet it had floating verses, made up in performance each time.
