On My Knees Lyrics
Artist (Band): Nicole C. Mullen

There are days,
When I feel
The best of me
Is ready to begin
Then they're days,
When I feel
I'm letting go,
And soaring on the wind
But 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 Lord that
Changes me
See, I don't know how,
But there's power
When I'm on my knees

I can be in a crowd,
Or by myself.
Or almost anywhere,
When I feel, there's a need
To talk with God, he is Emanuel,
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 Lord that changes me
See I don't know how, but there's power
In the blue sky
In the midnight
When I'm on my knees
I get on my knees
I get on my knees
And there I am before the Lord that changes me
I don't know how, but there's power
When I'm on my knees
When I'm on my knees.

    This song has such a powerful message in even the most simple lyrics.
    When i listen and sing this song it provides such compfort when i am going through a diffucult season. It also provides an assurance that when i get on my knees and pray to my lord and saviour he can calm the storms of life that i go through. He reminds me that i am not alone when i go through the ups and downs of life, even in my darkest moments. He is always there watching over me and i can take him at his word when he says "the angel of the lord encamps around those who fear him and delivers them"... What an awesome god. Please, lets all remember that feb. 8 is mental health week. Share this message with others if you feel compelled to do so. Lets keep praying and talking in our communities... Because i believe that depression, panick attacks, and anxiety are not a sign of weakness they are a sign of someone trying to remain strong for way too long... Then we become overwhelmed, that is when we should get on our knees and pray with confidence that "he will never leave us nor forsake us". Keep shining,
