I remain to my cause true
championing a selfless truth,
let the world rage and shout
let her vile volcanoes boil
can the winds quake Everest?
Sticks or stones may break my bones
speakers or looters may paint me black,
but a Stephen, I lift my face
to lofty heights that be sublime
freedom, justice and all that’s holy.
Ye vile vipers and puff adders
hear the gospel I proclaim to thee
