Someone Stood Up For Stephen
Words and music by Ray Boltz and Steve Millikan
They grabbed a hold
Of the preacher boy
And drug him
To the edge of the town
With hate in their eyes
And rocks in their hands
They couldn't wait
To knock him down
They said,
He's just another believer
Getting ready to take a fall
There's no one here
Who can save him
There's nobody here he can call
CHORUS:
But someone stood up for Stephen
He wasn't standing alone
Someone stood up for Stephen
At the Father's throne
The sky opened up
And the clouds rolled away
Stephen saw Jesus and then
Someone stood up for Stephen
When Stephen stood up for Him
Stephen kept right on preaching
He just wouldn't back down
He was living for Jesus
No matter who was around
Oh, they just couldn't stop him
Now matter how they tried
Stephen knew that to live is Christ
And Christians never die
CHORUS
Don't you know
You can trust the Lord?
His Holy Word is true
If you stand up for Him
I know He'll stand up for you
CHORUS
