Lyrics

Stephen was stoned to death preaching for the Lord
And James the brother of John was killed by the sword
These disciples they gave it all

And Paul's in prison again Praising the Lord
And Paul's in prison again Praising the Lord

Peter was crucified upside down
And Andrew his brother was crucified as well
These disciples they gave it all

And Paul's in prison again Praising the Lord
And Paul's in prison again Praising the Lord

Praising the Lord, Praising the Lord

Paul kept on preaching out on the road
But he was beheaded somewhere around Rome
This apostle he gave it all

Now Paul's in heaven Praising the Lord
Now the Saints are in heaven Praising the Lord

Praising the Lord, Praising the Lord.



Randal does it again....a creative topic. I like the way you cited all the guys who stood up for the Lord and were not afraid to die for him. As far as I know this is the first time I have ever heard a song written about this subject.
Nice harmonica!

Nice harmonica, clever bouncy rhythms, it's a catchy religious song. The bass is deep and chatty.

Great message and bible story lyrics! You always praise the Lord, that is awesome. I always know your songs because your voice is so different.

Very Bob Dylan sounding especially with the harmonica .
I liked the tune and the music on this .has a nice raw real quality to it . A songwriter song .

I like the topic of the song, I can tell the it was from the heart. The vocal pitch needs a little work but overall you did a nice job

Definitely a good start, for great potential. Sends a clear message and has a storyline behind it. The rhythm guitar is on track, and addition of the harmonica is a nice touch. Would have been nice to hear some harmonies.

The song is orignial and has some good ideas in it.

Inspirational arraingement done well. Message is good and felt.

This song is definitely off the beaten path... sounds like old Bob Dylan. Some movies use this type of material. If it were produced better this might be a really interesting song.

Good song, lyrics are great. Guitar is clear and harmonica suits it well. You can definetly hear the passion in the singers voice. Recording is done well.

Very Informative for persons who do not understand the redemption of Christ.
