Stand

I stand to praise You,
My tongue to sing Your Word,
I close – my eyes to worship.

My heart burns within me,
Voices of joy are raised,
Echoes – for Your glory.

Lips of sinners saved,
Our voices are raised…

Stand and praise Him all the nations,
Praise the King of Heaven,
Worthy is His name,
Worthy is His name,

Sing the song of our Salvation,
To the One who saved us,
Worthy is His name,
Worthy is His name.

I stand under Grace,
Freed from the wrath deserved,
I long – to see Your face.

When I will stand,
Before Your judgment throne,
I’ll kneel – like every man.

With hope in Christ alone,
Redeemed as His own…

Stand up and praise Him,
Stand up and praise Him,
Stand up and praise Him,
He is the Lord.

My lips will pour forth praise, for you teach me your statutes. My tongue will sing of your word, for all your commandments are right. (Psalm 119:171-172 ESV)
