Stand up

Today the STAND UP campaign will be happening all around the world. Bob Marley sums it up best (with impeccable theology):

Most people think
Great God will come from the skies,
Take away ev’rything, and make ev’rybody feel high.
But if you know what life is worth
You would look for yours on earth:
And now you see the light,
You stand up for your rights.

Get up, stand up...

We’re sick and tired of your ism-skism game,
Dyin’ and goin’ to heaven in Jesus’ name, Lord.
We know when we understand:
Almighty God is a living man.
You can fool some people sometimes,
But you can’t fool all the people all the time:
So now we see the light,
We gonna stand up for our rights.

Get up, stand up...

—Bob Marley, “Get Up, Stand Up” (1973)
