Story behind the song
Randy's Dad passed away after a long bout with heart problems and failure. He figured the best way to honor his dad's memories was through a song that expresses the faith and convictions he stood for. God bless and Randy hopes this blesses and encourages all who listen.
He stood strong, as a pillar of strength,
Holding up the blood stained banner, he stood strong
Though the world misunderstood him, his faith stood strong
Now he's in the bosom of the Father, he stood strong.
His love for God and His holy Word and Jesus who died for all
He gave his life for his family, his strength was mighty and tall
We knew him and his unwavering faith, he left a legacy so true
My dad instilled a foundation of God's Word we now look too
His purpose was clear to everyone, his devotion could not be denied
Though at times his words seemed to be rough, he just wanted to do what's right
Now he's passed from this life to a glory unseen, but his wisdom speaks loud and strong
I'll build upon that foundation that will reach generations to come.
