HAVING DONE ALL, I STAND (Song Lyrics)

the whole armor of god

Chorus
Having done all, I stand
Upon the solid Rock, not man
I cannot do anymore, ‘tis Your command
To be the best I can be, the best I can

To be the best I can be, the best I can
Only in Christ, can this manifest
I’ve tried so hard; but that’s not what You desire
You say be still, and in You, come rest

But Lord, I’m here, don’t I have to do something
Waves are alashing, I need help now
I have on my helmet, breastplate, and sandals
Belt, sword and shield, Your word shows me how

How to pray, and pray, and pray in the Spirit
Then to stand, and trust all unto You
Help me to stand firm, love embraced, not fear it
Fear definitely not sent from You

Chorus
Having done all, I stand
Upon the solid Rock, not man
I cannot do anymore, ‘tis Your command
To be the best I can be, the best I can

You have not given me the spirit of fear
But of power, love and a sound mind
And my heart always beats next to Yours, so dear
Kept forever safe, with mercies kind

Time does not keep you from love across the miles
Lord, please show me, show me how to stand
How does it look to stand midst the fiery trials
I can do it, if You take my hand

Bridge
I stand because You ask me to
I stand because I’m free
Free to follow Jesus
I stand because I’m me

Chorus
Having done all, I stand
Upon the solid Rock, not man
I cannot do anymore, ‘tis Your command
To be the best I can be, the best I can

    • Thank you Bart for your encouraging comment. To God be the glory. I think upon Moses having his hands/arms held up when he was overwhelmed and could no longer do it himself Exodus 17. Sometimes we feel the same; but have no one to hold ours in the physical. Thank you Father that You take a hold upon us when we can no longer walk alone. When we no longer have the strength to grasp Your hand, You grasp ours even tighter. You never let go, we do. Forgive us.

      • Amen ! All we can do is give God all the honor and glory. It was Him that gifted us and He allows us the opportunity to tell His story thru our lens , using our vocabulary. So the only righteous thing to do is honor Him by it. Blessings My Friend.
        In Christ
