1 Can you stand for God, tho' you stand alone,
With your heart at rest, and your soul secure;
With the rock beneath, and in front the throne,
Can you stand and still endure?
Can you stand, can you stand, can you stand for Christ alone?
If we stand in the strife 'till the end of life,
We shall stand at the heav'nly throne.
2 Can you stand for God when the heart grows faint,
And your sad soul looks through the blinding tears;
Can you bear life's sorrows without complaint,
Through the tedious, toilsome year? [Chorus]
3 Can you stand with faith, though the time be long,
Though the night be dark, and the day-star dim;
Can you stand for truth, and in Christ be strong,
'Till you stand complete in him? [Chorus]
