So Far… The Best of Susan Ashton Volume 1, an album of mostly previously released singles, was released in 1995, and featured a newly recorded track entitled “Stand.”
I first heard this song on a W.O.W. compilation CD; I’d never heard of Susan Ashton before. But this song is REALLY good! Let me know if you like it, too!!
This song is a statement of trust… that becomes a statement of faith.

With visible breath, I’m calling Your name. With visible tracks, I’m finding my way.
With a sorrowful heart, I honor this pain… and offer these tears to the rain.
In a moment of truth, at the top of the hill, I open my arms and let go of my will…
And stand with my face to the wind…
with the storm beating down on this sacred ground!
If I stand for the grace that I’ve known, for what I believe,
then I won’t stand alone. No, I won’t stand alone!
There’s a new pair of eyes to embrace all I see,
a new peace of mind and it comes quietly.
There’s a joy in my heart that You’ve given to me, and I offer this soul’s melody.
So, I beat on my chest ‘til my song has been sung,
and I cry like a wolf at the top of my lungs… (CHORUS)
When the thundering voices of doubt try to shake my faith, oh
I’ll be listening from inside out, and I won’t be afraid to… (CHORUS)
