Daniel of old surely knew how to pray, when even a king took that freedom away.

I too, can kneel and seek help from on High; Be faithful and fearless in choosing the right.

 

I will stand up! Stand up! Stand up and be counted! Stand up! Stand Up!

And show I am true. Stand up! With faith and courage resounding.

Stand up and be counted with God’s chosen few.

 

Nephi obeyed God, though loved ones reveled. He sought for the truth and be learned for himself.

I, too, can search and ponder and pray, receive blessings from heaven whene’er I obey.

 

I will stand up! Stand up! Stand up and be counted! Stand up! Stand Up!

And show I am true. Stand up! With faith and courage resounding.

Stand up and be counted with God’s chosen few.

 

Joseph, the prophet loved God in his youth. In life and in death never turned from the truth.

I can be valiant and let my light shine by loving the Lord with my heart, strength, and mind.

 

I will stand up! Stand up! Stand up and be counted! Stand up! Stand Up!

And show I am true. Stand up! With faith and courage resounding.

Stand up and be counted with God’s chosen few.
