There breathes a certain company of people
Unimpressed with themselves
Still standing – to give honor to His name.
The enemy can’t rejoice against this nation
When they fall – they do arise
Still standing – to his horrified surprise.
There lives a unique family related
By the blood of Jesus Christ
Still standing – unshakable in the shakings
There thrives a select group of folks, as one,
Who love the name of Christ
Still standing – with expectancy.
This company of people, brought close by His presence
Are a joyful crowd of because they know
The Master’s love, The Savior’s touch
Still standing – receiving strength.
Lord, give me this certain company of people
Gone through the fire, Called from the wilderness
Still standing - by your grace
My heart is warmed when I think that we
sharpened each others’ blades, readied ourselves,
Still standing – we have been changed
If I have to go to war – let it be with these
Who counted the cost, and called it pocket change
Still standing – for the glory of the call.
