From: "Billy J. Davis, II" email@example.com Words and music: Rich Mullins and Steve Cudworth Performer: Rich Mullins Album: Songs If I Stand (i capo on the FOURTH fret, this song gets HIGH!) (Lively melody) D A D Well there's more that rises in the morning than the sun, G more that shines in the night than just the moon! D There's more than just this fire here that keeps me warm, A and a shelter that is larger than this room... D And there's a loyalty that is deeper than mere sentiment, G and a music higher than the songs that I can sing... D D The stuff of earth competes for the a-le-e-giance I owe only to the Giver of all good things... Chorus D A So if I stand, let me stand on the promise that You will see me through... G D And if i can't let me fall on the Grace that first brought me to You! A And if i sing let it be for the joy that has born in me the-eese songs... G D and if i weep let it be as a man who is longing fo-or his ho-ome... Verse 2 D A D Well there's more that dances on the prarie than the wind, G more that pulses in the ocean than the tide, D there's a love that is fiercer than the love between friends, A more gentle than a mother's, with her newborn by her side... D A D And there's a loyalty that is deeper than mere sentiment, G and a music higher than the songs that I can sing! D The stuff of earth competes for the a-le-e-giance A I owe only to the Giver of all good things... Chorus Tag G A D Yes if I weep let it be as a man who is longing fo-or his ho-ooomme...!Home
