If I stand

"There’s more that rises in the morning than the sun
More that shines in the night, than just the moon
There’s more than just this fire here to keep me warm
In a shelter than is larger than this room
There’s a loyalty that’s deeper than mere sentiment
A music higher than the songs that I can sing
The 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 bring me through
And if I can’t let me fall on the Grace
That first bought me to you
And if I sing, let me sing for the joy
That has born in me these songs
But if I weep let it be as a man
Who is longing for his home…"
(Rich Mullins)
