STONED FOR JESUS


Stephen was stoned to death for preaching Jesus Christ back in the day

He preached the gospel of grace, Jesus the truth, the life, the only way

Before he yielded up his spirit into God's hands he prayed

Charge not their sin against them before he went away


I'm getting stoned for Jesus, from stony hearts around me

They're trying their best to knock me out of this ministry

Greater is He that is within me, than he that is in this world

I may get knocked down, but don't count me out from the stones they have hurled


I'm counting it all joy as the tribulations come

I'm yielding up my spirit to my Father's will, I succumb

Each day I'm praying Father forgive them, for they know not what they do

Father I pray to soften their hearts to receive the truth that only comes from You
