He Stood Up for Me

A song given to me by the Holy Spirit after Art preached about the woman caught in adultery:

He Stood up for Me

V 1  My time had come, surrounded on all sides.

I felt the chill of their scorn, their judgement against me.

Caught in the moment of my weakness, my secret sin exposed.

My life caught in their vicious hold.  Oh but God, had a plan revealed that day, to me.

His mercy, brand new for me that blessed day.

Chorus

Jesus, my Advocate

Jesus, Lover of my soul

Jesus, the One whose love covers me

the day I stood in the midst of Thee.

V2  All of the sudden with their stones they walked away.  

And He now surrounded me,

with His grace sufficient He stood up for me.

with His grace sufficient He stood up for me.

with His grace sufficient He stood up for me.

repeat Chorus

V3   The evil plan against me they could not perform.

Brought to the One who Alone held the authority to forgive and set me free.

Not to death, but mercy they brought me.

Not to death, but mercy they brought me.

Not to death, but mercy they brought me.

Final Chorus
