...I just fall on my knees...

Post by Guest » Fri Jun 10, 2005 6:51 pm

An elderly lady in our congregation wants a hymn she remmbers that has the line in it: I just fall on my knees...

She has frozen knee joints and I'm sure that's why she remembers that one line. Our music director and searches in all our old hymnals and collections are no help.

She can't even remember the tune.

Since she is in her '80's and a Southerner and favors the Gaither Family music, that's where I've been searching.

Any help in the search appreciated.

This is a long shot, but there is a southern gospel hymn called "I Bowed On My Knees and Cried Holy". It's been featured on many Gaither broadcasts:

I dreamed of a city called Glory,
So bright and so fair.
When I entered that gate I cried, "Holy"
The angels all met me there:
They carried me from mansion to mansion,
And oh what sites I saw.
But I said, "I want to see Jesus,
He's the One who died for all."

Chorus
Then I bowed on my knees and cried,
"Holy, Holy, Holy."
Then I clapped my hands and sang, "Glory,
Glory to the Son of God."
Then I bowed on my knees and cried,
"Holy, Holy, Holy."
Then I clapped my hands and sang, "Glory,
Glory to the Son of God."
I thought as I entered that city,
My friends all knew me well.
They showed me the streets of Heaven;
Such scenes too numerous to tell;
I saw Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,
Mark, Luke and Timothy.
But I said, "I want to see Jesus,
He's the One who died for me."

Chorus
Then I bowed on my knees and cried,
"Holy, Holy, Holy."
Then I clapped my hands and sang, "Glory,
Glory to the Son of God."
Then I bowed on my knees and cried,
"Holy, Holy, Holy."
Then I clapped my hands and sang, "Glory,
Glory to the Son of God."

There are also two at least contemporary songs with that line. One is by Corrinne May:

Everything In Its Time (By Corrinne May)

Sometimes I wonder what lies ahead
How long till my hunger is fed
They say it's hard to make it in this part of town
So many people on this merry-go-around

Some folks try astrology
Some turn to crystal balls
To find an answer
To get through it all
I just fall on my knees and I try to pray
In the silence I can hear Him say

The river runs and the river hides
Out to the ocean and under the sky
I promise you, the answer will come
Hold on to patience and watch for the sign
Everything in its time

I often feel like I'm two steps behind
Somebody must have moved that finish line
There are a thousand reasons why I should give up
But I'm stubborn in the things I believe

The river runs and the river hides
Out to the ocean and under the sky
I promise you, the answer will come
Hold on to patience and watch for the sign
Everything in its time

'cause maybe there's another plan
One I still can't see
A little surprise, like your love in my life
Funny how time changes how we see

The river runs and the river hides
Out to the ocean and under the sky
I promise you, the answer will come
Hold on to patience and watch for the sign
Everything in its time
Everything in its time

The other by Jaci Velasquez:

Just A Prayer Away

Tears that fell like rain
Streamed down from my heart
Colors turned to gray
Emptiness led the way
Until I fell apart

You came to save me
To show me that

Chorus:
You're just a prayer away
No matter where I am
I know in my heart
You're never too far
When I'm losing my way
You're just a prayer away
My strength is in my faith
I'm never alone
I'm never afraid
Cuz' you're just a prayer away

When I close my eyes
Lord, I call your name
And the dark subsides
Nothing can take the place
Of the peace I find

You came to save me
To show me that

Repeat Chorus:

Whenever I need to find you
I just fall on my knees
In you I find the strength that I need to live
To believe

Repeat Chorus:

Not sure if any of these are it...if not, let me know, and I'll keep searching! :)

Thanks,
Steve

The lady was deeply moved by your replies to my query. I shall probably here from her this week about the particulars - we just had a brief moment today for me to hand her a print-out.

Our morning worship had a strange happening - there was a bat in the sanctuary holding at the highest point in an arch! We met in the basement and one of the brothers cimbed up that afternoon and removed it only to find out it had two young. Yes, we fell prey to the "bats in the belfrey" cliche, but it WAS funny.

Thank you again for sharing your expertise - the laughter is a small return for your time. ~E

Hi E,

I've had bats in the belfry, but never literally! So funny! :D

Hope the hymn turns out to be the right one. God bless!

Save Me

(written by: Corrinne May
From the album "Safe From A Crazy World"

I drift, I burn, I fly
When you sing lullabies
I'm helpless, I'm yearning
I'm like the putty in your hands

I laugh, I dream, I cry
When you take me on a roller coaster ride
You see me through and through
You see just who i am
Just take my hand and

Save me from this place
Heaven knows I'm falling
For you, my sweet embrace
Heaven Knows
Heaven knows I've been waiting for you

I had a dream that i
was falling from the sky
At 90 miles an hour
I was bound to crash and die
But out of nowhere you came and rescued me
There must be some grace in the touch of your face
I'm so happy that I've found you
I'm no longer afraid

Oh ' cause you
Save me from this place
Heaven knows i'm falling
For you my sweet embrace
Heaven knows
Heaven knows I've been waiting

Before i met you
Life was slow-mo
So slow-mo
I thought i had it figured out
But you came and turned my whole world upside down

Save me from this place
Heaven knows I'm falling
For you, my sweet embrace
Heaven knows
Heaven knows you've come to

Save me from this place
Heaven knows I'm falling
For you, my sweet embrace
Heaven Knows
Heaven knows I've been waiting for you
Waiting for you

I woke up with the song " I bowed on my knees and cried Holy" in my head, but I could not remember all the words. I needed to find the lyrics because I literally couldn't get the song out of my head. I typed in the title as I knew it and my search engine led me to your website. Thanks for being here

Back in 1977, there was a song on a christian station called "Guilty of Love in the First Degree" It started out with a gavel banging on the bench and the narrator says to bring the prisoner in; Of course that being Jesus. I have searched everywhere for that song and can not find it. Do you think you can? I would like the words and the music to it, or at least know where I could buy it. Well, thanks again.
