Once a man named Steven preached about the Lord
Folks were saved then folks were healed as they heard his word
Satan did not like it soon he had his crowd
And as he was tried that day Steven cried aloud.

I see Jesus standing at the father's right hand
I see Jesus over in the Promised Land
Work is over now I'm coming to be
I see Jesus standing waiting for me.

--- Instrumental ---

As the stones fell on him beating out his life
Steven knew he'd soon be through with all toil and strife
So much like the Master with a heart so true
He prayed Lord forgive them for they know not what they do.

Through the gates of glory down the streets of gold
March the hero on the Lord into heaven's fold
When he met the Saviour at the great white throne
I believed he smiled and said Steven welcome home.

I see Jesus standing at the father's right end
I see Jesus over in the Promised Land
Work is over now I'm coming to be
I see Jesus standing waiting for me.

(I see you standing waiting for me...)

    Steven being put to death by stoning saw jesus giving him a standing ovation for his faith. It's the only time you'll see jesus standing he's usually seated by the fathers right hand..
