Crabb Family – The Reason That I'm Standing lyrics

I've stood for the Gospel
When it seemed I stood alone
And through the heartaches and frustration
I kept my focus on the Throne
So many times I have recalled
The Savior's words so true
"If you won't be ashamed of me
Then I won't be of you"

So I'll proudly stand until I see
The face of the One who gave
Everything for me

When the reason that I'm standing
Stands in front of me
Every battle that I've fought
Will fade from memory
I'll bow before His mighty throne
And fall down on my knees
When the reason that I'm standing
Stands in front of me

The road has not been easy
At times I lost my way
So often I have stumbles
Searching for the light of day
Circumstances all around me
I thought I'd surely fall
When the whispering of doubt fear
Told me "You will lose it all"

But He kept me with His Amazing Grace
And someday soon I'll have the chance
To thank Him face to face


We will join the millions
Every kindred tongue and race
Every child of God that day
Will look upon His face
And the heroes and the martyrs
Who died on the Pagan sword
We'll all stand together
And declare, "JESUS IS LORD"

Chorus 2x

When the reason that I'm standing
Stands in front of me
