"High Tide Or Low Tide" as written by and Bob Marley....
In high seas or in low seas
I'm gonna be your friend
I'm gonna be your friend
In high tide or in low tide
I'll be by your side
I'll be by your side

I heard her praying, praying, praying
I said I heard my mother
She was praying in the night (praying, praying, praying)
And the words that she said (the words that she said)

They still-a linger in my head (lingers in my head)
She said a child is born in this world
He needs protection, ooh
God, guide and protect us

When we're wrong, please correct us
(when we're wrong, correct us)
And stand by me

In high seas or in low seas
I'm gonna be your friend
He said I'm gonna be your friend
And, baby, in high tide or in low tide
I'll be by your side
I'll be by your side

I said I heard my mother
She was crying in the night (I heard her crying, crying, crying)
And the tears that she shed (the tears that she shed)
They still lingers in my head (lingers in my head)

She said a child is born in this world
He needs protection, ooh
God, guide and protect us
When we're wrong, (when we're wrong) correct us

And in high seas or in low seas
I'm gonna be your friend
I'm gonna be your friend
Said, high tide or low tide
I'll be by your side
I'll be by your side

    General CommentI think this song is sang to God. He is asking that God give us protection and righteousness. In high tide, or low tide, he'll be at God's side.
