Jars Of ClayIf I Stand

There's more that rises in the morning than the sun And more that shines in the night than just the moon There's more than just this fire here that keeps me warm In a shelter that is larger than this room And there's a loyalty that's deeper than mere sentiments And a music higher than the songs that I can sing Stuff of Earth competes for the allegiance I owe only to the Giver of all good things So if I stand let me stand on the promise that you will pull me through And if I can't, let me fall on the grace that first brought me to You So if I sing let me sing for the joy that has born in me these songs And if I weep let it be as a man who is longing for his home And there's more that dances on the prairies than the wind And more that pulses in the ocean than the tide There's a love that's fiercer than the love between friends More gentle than a mother's when her baby's at her side And there's a loyalty that's deeper than mere sentiments And a music higher than the songs that I can sing The stuff of Earth competes for the allegence I owe only to the Giver of all good things So if I stand let me stand on the promise that You will pull me through And if I can't let me fall on the grace that first brought me to You And if I sing let me sing for the joy that has born in me these songs And if I weep let it be as a man who is longing for his home So if I stand let me stand on the promise You will pull me through And if I can't let me fall on the grace that first brought me to You And if I sing let me sing for the joy that has born in me these songs And if I weep let it be as a man who is longing for his home And if I weep let it be as a man who is longing for home
