Tune: "He Keeps Me Singing"
Ste-phen was a ser-vant of the Lord,
Full of grace and pow'r was h-e.
He could do great won-ders, mir-a-cles
For the peo-ple there to see.
Ste-phen preached the mess-age
Of the ris-en Lord,
But some Jews op-posed him.
Would not lis-ten to his word.
One day Jew-ish ru-lers talked to him.
There ap-peared a won-drous sigh-t.
His face as an an-gel's face be-came
And he tes-ti-fied with might.
They be-came so ang-ry
They would kill him there.
They cast stones up-on him
And he ut-tered this in pray'r:
"I see hea-ven o-pened and my Lord
Stands by God on His right han-d"
As the stones con-tin-ued to rain down
Peo-ple watched this right-ous man.
"Lord re-ceive my spir-it"
He fell to his knees.
"Hold not this a-gainst them."
To the end his God did please.
