Standing In His Name


Always was a little too sensitive.
Seemed to take every word,
To heart ...
Never knew just how
to close out biting words.
Always let them slice
right through my heart.
Didn't quite have all the safeguards
you hear them talk about.
When someone spoke against me,
I let it crush me to the ground.
And when someone tore me down
I let myself be put to shame.
I failed to realize,
No one can stand against me;
Not when I'm standing in
His name.

No, no one can stand against you
when you're standing in His Name.
The man who speaks against you
is the one to be put to shame.

Tried to stand up for things
I thought were right.
But there are always those,
willing to stand and fight.
I let their angry words
knock me down.
Forget who's side I was
standing on.
Began to listen to the sound
of their angry voices.
I failed to hear,
The Only One True Voice
I ever need fear.

No, no one can stand against you
when you're standing in His Name.
The man who speaks against you
is the one to be put to shame.
Keep standing in His Name.
