On My Knees

Standard

For this reason I bow my knees before the Father,
from whom every family in heaven
and on earth derives its name,
that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory,
to be strengthened with power through His Spirit
in the inner man,
so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith;
and that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
may be able to comprehend with all the saints
what is the breadth and length and height and depth
and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge,
that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.
Now to Him who is able to do

far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think,
according to the power that works within us,
to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus
to all generations forever and ever. Amen.

~Ephesians 3:14-21

There are days when I feel
The best of me is ready to begin.
Then there’re days when I feel
I’m letting go and soaring on the wind.
Cause I’ve learned in laughter or in pain
How to survive.

I get on my knees, I get on my knees;
There I am before the Love that changes me.
See I don’t know how, but there’s powr
When I’m on my knees.

I can be in a crowd
Or by myself, almost anywhere;
When I feel there’s a need
To talk with God; He is Emmanuel.
When I close my eyes no darkness there,
There’s only light.

I get on my knees, I get on my knees;
There I am before the Love that changes me.
See I don’t know how, but there’s pow’r
In the blue skies, in the midnight
When I’m on my knees.

I get on my knees, I get on my knees;
There I am before the Love that changes me.
See I don’t know how, but there’s pow’r
When I’m on my oh, when I’m on my,
When I’m on my knees.

  1. It may be an old song, but it’s new to me. Simply beautiful… thanks for sharing. You’re always teaching me 🙂

  2. Oh, I’m so glad it’s new to you, Sara. It’s been one of my favorites for years. Glad you like it. 😉

    Ummm…the teaching must, then, be mutual! I learn so much from you. Thanks.

  3. I love this song…and what a wonderful reminder that HE his only as far from me as my knees are to the floor. Love you princess

  4. Papa, it’s obvious through the love you share, you spend much time on your knees. I will pray for you. Thanks for the privilege.

    THERE’S only light…. Amen!!!

  6. Hey, Heidi and Angie!

    How sad is this…almost a year and a half later I see y’all’s comments. I’m remembering this song again in my latest post. Sooooooo good to remember His love and how accessible He is…every moment of every day. And yes, Angie, that passage is foundational…

    Hope you two are doing well.
