Stand Up And Be Counted

The Story: When my niece was born I was asked to sing at her christening. I spent hours looking for a song to sing but couldn’t find anything that was even close to appropriate. So asked God what He would want to say to her and a I wrote her a song out of that. So when my sister said she was expecting again I thought, uh-oh, now I need to write him a song! Just after he was born I started asking God what He would want to say to him and the phrase ‘stand up and be counted’ came to me instantly. I went to the piano and this song is what came out of that time. They then asked me to sing at his Christening and they didn’t actually hear this song until then. Thankfully they like it and the chorus is hanging as word art on his wall.

The Song:

There are people who will try to

Make you do what they want you to

Those who will push you

To be somebody else

There are those who are only thinking

Of what you can do for them

So to you, little man

This is what I say


Stand up and be counted

Have strength to turn and walk another way

Be strong and courageous

Fighting hard for those who stand at the side of you

Have faith in your convictions

Don't let others water them down

Search out grace and understanding

Find a way to be true to the man inside of you


There'll be times when you'll want to

Give up and walk away

When no one is listening

To a word you have to say

When frustration and failure

Feel like they're here to stay

So for you, little man

This is what I pray


Stand up and be counted

Be strong and courageous

Have grace and understanding

Find a way to be true

To the man inside of you
