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

Surprised "Let Us Break Bread Together" has not come up yet; it would match the background given in the original request. I've seen the 3rd line as both "When I fall on my knees" and "As I fall on my knees". It's a simple spiritual often sung without a hymnal, so suppose "I just fall on my knees" may also have been adopted in some settings.

Let us break bread together on our knees, (on our knees)
Let us break bread together on our knees. (on our knees)
When I fall on my knees with my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me.

Let us drink wine together on our knees, (on our knees)
Let us drink wine together on our knees. (on our knees)
When I fall on my knees with my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me.

Let us praise God together on our knees, (on our knees)
Let us praise God together on our knees. (on our knees)
When I fall on my knees with my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me.

Would this be the song you are looking for? I am not sure whether it is a Christian song.

Last night I was dreaming
I was locked in a prison cell
When I woke up I was screaming
Calling out your name (whoa)

And the judge and the jury
They all put the blame on me (the blame on me)
They wouldn't go for my story
They wouldn't to hear my plea

Only you can set me free
'Cause I'm guilty (Guilty)
Guilty as a girl can be
Come on baby can't you see
I stand accused
Of love in the first degree

(Guilty) Of love in the first degree

Someday I'm believing
You will come to my rescue
Unchain the heart your keepin'
Let me start a new (uuuu)

The hours passed so slowly
Since they've thrown away the key (Away the key)
Can't you see that I'm lonely
Won't you help me be

Only you can set me free
'Cause I'm guilty (Guilty)
Guilty as a girl can be
Come on baby can't you see
I stand accused
Of love in the first degree

(Guilty) Of Love in the first degree

(Guilty)
Of Love

(Guilty)
Of Love in

(Guilty) of Love

(Guilty) of Love in

(Guilty)
Of love in the first degree

And the judge and the jury
They all put the blame on me
They wouldn't go for my story
They wouldn't hear my plea

Only you can set me free
'Cause I'm guilty (Guilty)
Guilty as a girl can be
Come on baby can't you see
I stand accused
Of love in the first degree

I"m sure the song the elderly lady was refering to was the first song listed. It is sang on the Gaither show and is very moving. I fell on my knees and cried Holy, has to be one of the most stirring songs I have ever heard! No matter how many times I hear it, It still brings tears to my eyes! Beautiful!!

The song "Guilty Of Love (In The First Degree)" was written and recorded by Bob Willis, a preacher from Folsomville, Indiana in 1967. The song was then recorded by Carl and Perl Butler on Columbia Records, The Florida Boys, The Happy Goodman Family, Former Governor Jimmie Davis and many more artists.
You can go to Bobwillismusic.com and obtain a complimentary copy of sheet music on "Guilty Of Love" or go to the sites of the artists listed above.

I found this on another site hopefully this is the Hymn your elderly paritioner is looking for.

Based on VU 480 "Let Us Break Bread Together"
He has fallen to the gro_und, on his knees,
He has fallen to the gro_und, on his knees,
When I fall down on my knees with my face to the rising sun,
Oh, Lord, have mercy on me.

@ steveliu-

The African American lady who plays piano at my church sang that song today
("I Bowed On My Knees and Cried Holy") and it was so beautiful, I wept. That song was just made for her voice.

So glad I found this site to find the name of the song. :)
