The One who is the Lord of all
Stood still to heed a beggar’s call.
He stood because of men’s deceit
Before a Roman judgment seat.
But how His peace and love were known
As Jesus stood amidst His own!
They found His care had gone before
When He was standing on the shore.
His witness Stephen saw Him stand
As Son of Man at God’s right hand.
Sheaves now, as product of His grief,
Bow down to His one standing sheaf.
Claiming His rights He soon will stand
Upon the sea and on the land.
But now He loves to see His bride
Standing in splendour at His side.
