Matthew West — Stand lyrics

It was an ordinary morning
At the school upon the hill
The sun was slowly rising
The flag was standing still
And the students were rushing
To face another day

But in the middle of the madness
There was one who made her way
She was standing by the flagpole
She bowed her head to pray
She said "I, I will not be afraid."

Chorus
She said who will stand, stand together
Heart to heart reaching out for love
Hand in hand with each other
By God's grace, who will stand?

Now everyone was watching
Staring at the girl
Some of them were laughing
And calling her a fool
And they said "She, ohh she will stand alone"

But then one by one they stepped out
One by one they came
Breaking form their silence
With a simple act of faith
They cried "We, no we are not ashamed"

Chorus
We will stand, stand together
Heart to heart reaching out for love
Hand in hand with each other
By God's grace, we will stand

Bridge
And we will stand up for what we believe
And we will stand up for our freedom
We will stand up for one nation under God
With liberty and justice for all!

Chorus
