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

HE’S HOLDING THE DOOR OPEN FOR YOU (A Song, A Plea)

doors and windows picture 7

The trials of rain are afalling
Thundery storms of life, they accrue
Are you looking around about you
And wondering what others will do

Chorus
‘cause He’s holding the door open for you
It won’t stay open forever, today
He’s calling softly, softly, child enter
Just follow my footprints, I’ll lead you through

The waters are arising and fast
The sounds of His voice may disappear
Oh! As much as you love your loved ones
‘Tis your soul that must answer and hear

Chorus
‘cause He’s holding the door open for you
It won’t stay open forever, today
He’s calling softly, softly, child enter
Just follow my footprints, I’ll lead you through

And know that as you take that last step
And cross His bloodline of salvation
There you’ll find sweet comfort, no fear
Saying goodbye, worldly temptation

Chorus
‘cause He’s holding the door open for you
It won’t stay open forever, today
He’s calling softly, softly, child enter
Just follow my footprints, I’ll lead you through

Oh! The waves will still be apounding
But no longer upon weakened frame
‘cause you’re now safe in His loving arms
And nothing will ever be the same

Chorus
‘cause He’s holding the door open for you
It won’t stay open forever, today
He’s calling softly, softly, child enter
Just follow my footprints, I’ll lead you through
