Who Can Stand?

by Greg Linscott

How can we stand against God our Creator;
Or who can endure the strong arm of His rage?
The weight of His anger rests heavy upon us
Crushing us under the guilt of sin’s wage.

How holy the standard He has established;
The measure that no man can hope to achieve.
For all men have sinned; come short of His glory
And on his own merits can gain no reprieve.

Oh! Hear the desperate cry of Your people.
A call for Your mercy to spare us, we pray.
We all do require the atonement of Jesus
Our High Priest in Heaven- your pity display.
