There once lived a man named Stephen / I read about him just the other day / A man of conviction / Who was not afraid to stand up for what he believed / He knew how to please the Father / By giving all the glory to the Son / With boldness he reminded the Pharisees / This Jesus really was the Holy One / Before the angry mob drug him, out of the city / To stone him, he would not compromise / Before the jagged edges cut him / He looked up into heaven / And when he turned his eyes, he saw a... •• Standing ovation - from Jesus Christ the King / A standing ovation - there was a great cloud of witnesses / Angels all singing / Many would deny the Savior / When standing face to face with death / But Stephen would not deny - he was ready to die / He would be faithful to the very last breath / He stood for Jesus, and Jesus stood for Him / I hope that one day I will become / Half the man that Stephen was / A man who is willing to stand for the Lord / In everything he does / I cannot wait to go to heaven / I’m gonna find Stephen in the crowd / That very first day / I’ll be standing right beside him / We’ll turn our eyes on Jesus / And join right in the praise / We’ll be giving Him a... •• Standing ovation - for Jesus Christ the King / A standing ovation, We’ll cry "Holy, Holy, Holy! / Worthy is the Lamb!" / Cause He could’ve called ten thousand angels / To return Him to his Father’s side / But Jesus would not turn His eyes - He was ready to die / He would be faithful to the very last breath./ For you are holy, holy, holy are you Lord my God
