stand and behold lyrics – alan guno

stand and behold the name of the lord
the power of our call
stand and behold – he’s made us his own
his mercy comes to all
from the dark night, his love’s light
is ours to be claimed
call on the power of his name
his name

we still remember the chains of our past
silenced by slavery’s fear
out of the darkness, rejoicing at last
our voices rise out of our tears

calling his name, desert sands shout for rain

stand and behold the name of the lord
the power of our call
stand and behold – he’s made us his own
his mercy comes to all
from the dark night, his love’s light
is ours to be claimed
call on the power of his name
his name

long we’ll remember the stillness of days
the cries of his p*ssion so new
run from the tomb that now breathes with our praise
and rings with the hymns of his truth

strength now is found – with our faith we call out

stand and behold the name of the lord
the power of our call
stand and behold – he’s made us his own
his mercy comes to all
from the dark night, his love’s light
is ours to be claimed
call on the power of his name

stand and behold the name of the lord
the power of our song
stand and behold – he’s made us his own
to him our hearts belong
and we’re now sure that his word
is ours to proclaim
call on the power of his name
his name

no more will sorrow quiet our days
no more will silence have might
now will our voices show us the way
leading us into his light
stand and behold the name of the lord

stand and behold the name of the lord
the power of our call
stand and behold – he’s made us his own
his mercy comes to all
from the dark night, his love’s light
is ours to be claimed
call on the power of his name

stand and behold the name of the lord
the power of our song
stand and behold – he’s made us his own
to him our hearts belong
and we’re now sure that his word
is ours to proclaim
call on the power of his name
his name

stand and behold the name of the lord
