Burl Ives - Stand up for Jesus Lyrics

Burl Ives - Stand up for Jesus

1st. Verse:

I met a man from Galilee
In sandals and a robe
Who didn't have a worldly thing
That he could sell or show
Just words about a kingdom
He said would take me in
If only I had faith enough
To give my heart to Him:

Chorus:

STAND UP FOR JESUS
Everybody on your feet
STAND UP FOR JESUS
And, sing His name so sweet
Just lift your voice in triumph
Everytime His light shines through
STAND UP FOR JESUS
Cause, He gave His life for you.

2nd. Verse:

I told this man from Galilee
My sins went way too deep
For anyone to ever find
Such worthiness in me
He said , "It doesn't matter
My love will make you pure
If you will just ask me in
Eternal life is yours."

Chorus: Repeat.

Bridge:

Nobody will be stranded
At the gates of paradise
If we all stand together
And, give our love to Christ:

Chorus: Repeat.

Alt. Chorus:

STAND UP FOR JESUS
The journey has begun
STAND UP FOR JESUS
And, let His will be done
Just lift your voice in triumph
Everytime His light shines through,
STAND UP FOR JESUS
Cause, He gave His life for you.
