Standing {tall}

I stand tall – not in ability

Nor gifts, accomplishments – whatever


I stand tall – not in my past

The pain, the erroneous way


I stand tall in Jesus Christ

His death and resurrection


So I can stand as you judge

As you imagine my life as it was


The sinner who stood before you

Rejected by your Pharisean eyes


I stand because I’ve been touched

Placed here among your people


To show that even the amply bad

Can be saved just like you


As was said so long before

“I fall and yet by faith I stand,

I stand and will not let You go”
