05. I Stand For You

The Answer To The Question
by Tree63



 

Jesus, I stand for you
No matter what you lead me through
They will chase me out
And close me down
But Jesus, Iíll stand for you

Chorus:
I'll always stand - I'll always stand
I'll always stand for you...

Jesus, Iíve stood my ground
When unbelief was all around
I have felt the sting
Rejection brings
But Jesus, Iíll still stand for you

I'll always stand...

A time will come
When everyone
Will turn their eyes
On the Risen Son
But until that day, this world will turn away
And so I take your hand - Iíll always stand for you

Guilty of disgrace
But you took my place
So Jesus, Iíll always stand for you

I'll always stand...

Behind the Song:
"During an early morning prayer on my roof back home in Durban last year, I felt inspired to write an intimate worship song that said simply, "Despite all the things you throw at me, Lord, I will continue to walk this road and I will continue to stand for You.Ē This song came together in a very special way Ė worshipping God looking over my city in the early morning. It was an unforgettable way for God to give me a song, a song that is born out of experience and of carrying the burden of "picking up my cross.Ē" - John Ellis (Tree 63)
