Silently I Stand

By Lynn Cooper

What a wonderful song! I discovered Lynn's work while looking for sites to invite into the Christian Songwriters Web Ring. To hear a Realaudio version of this song and others by Lynn, see the link at the bottom of this page.

Lynn Cooper

(Introduction for 12 measures)

Silently I stand before the Lord
Waiting for Him to rescue me
For salvation comes from God alone
He is my rock, whom shall I fear

Days turn to nights and I am frightened for what I see
Hatred in the streets and children turn away from Thee
Oh call us back Lord, oh call us to your own
Humble us away from our Earthly throne

Silently I stand before the Lord
Waiting for Him to rescue me
For salvation comes from God alone
He is my rock, whom shall I fear

Lord King of Israel says - do not be afraid
I am the first and last, I will come to your aid
Trust me, and all will be fulfilled
If you follow and do my will

(Guitar solo)

Tell me where you want me to go - I'll go
With all my heart I unite with your Holy Name
I'll give you praise and glorify you forever
My soul sings safe beneath your wings
My soul sings safe beneath your wings
