Words by Joe Henson, IIIMusic by Dave Massa and Gary HallquistKey signature: C major (no sharps or flats)Meter: 18.104.22.168. with Refrain© 2017 Declaring Glory. This hymn may be freely reproduced and distributed but NOT sold for profit.1. When nations rage against the King And wicked rulers claim the throne, When rebel hearts abandon Truth, God’s faithful servants stand alone! I stand resolved without regret, My conscience captive to the Word. Yes, here I stand– God, help me stand– Forever loyal to my Lord!2. When saints surrender holy ground And trusted comrades flee the fight, When hurtful barbs are hurled by friends, God, help me stand for truth and right!3. When evil triumphs over good And holy ones now stand condemned, When precious few remain unmoved, God give me grace to stand with them!4. When all the world dishonors God And fools exchange His Truth for lies, When thankless creatures spurn their Lord, God, may I stand among the wise!
