John P. Kee - Stand Lyrics




I decided to take a stand
Not knowing I'll lose my best friend
But I'd rather; I'd rather live right
Than in hell lift up my eyes
All of Gods children just stand
Tell somebody say you stand
Eh Lord eh

Stand for Holiness
Stand for Righteousness
And be counted among them
That shall reign with Him
You stand
When friends are gone
Stand when you're all alone
And believe He shall receive His own

I decided to take a stand
Not believing I'd lose
Some of my friends
I would rather; I'd rather live right
Than in hell lift up my eyes.
All of Gods children just stand
Stand, everybody say you stand

Stand for Holiness
Stand for Righteousness
And be counted among them
That shall reign with Him
You stand
When friends are gone
Stand when you're all alone
And believe He shall receive His own

Stand for Holiness
Stand for Righteousness
And be counted among them
I'm gonna be in the number
You stand
When friends are gone
Stand when you're all alone
And believe He shall receive His own

Stand for Holiness
Stand for Righteousness
And be counted among them
That shall reign with Him
You stand
When friends are gone
Stand when you're all alone
And believe He shall receive His own

Everybody stand up and say
Stand for Holiness
Stand for Righteousness
And be counted among them
That shall reign with Him
You stand
When friends are gone
Stand when you're all alone
And believe He shall receive
And believe He shall receive
And believe He shall receive His own

(People say) stand (help me out)
You gonna do it
You gonna do, gonna do it no
(Point to somebody say) you stand

  65. Hidden Beauty

    STAND for something!

  66. Vanessa Rainey

    I believe if we learn to take a stand, more of us would be saved. Stop going along with crowd. Step from among them even if you have to be alone. Easy to say but takes real faith and courage to do. I love this song.

    Kiona McNutt

    Yes, it's not easy. It's so much easier to just go along with the crowd but when you have a genuine and intimate relationship with God you want to please Him and you care about what He thinks. This attitude is developed over time with prayer. You have to just pour your heart out to Him daily. He longs for and appreciates it. It's not based on perfection either. When I was young He put a fire in me that I have never lost. He did it I think because I was honest and showed respect. I know now why He kept me from certain things and people. God knows who belongs to Him. It's okay to have cub with some things in this life but I think He values people who aren't willing to sell out completely for money, women, men, sex and all those "things". The enemy will use these as a stumbling block to keep many from Christ.

    Kiona McNutt

    I meant fun. U don't think that God cares if we have healthy wholesome fun.

    Kiona McNutt

    I meant I don't think. Idiots are messin with my cell.

  67. Sharon Mills

    Amen☺
