Words by Bob Hartman
Based on Psalm 37:23-24

Standing on the corner I was losing track of time
When away in the distance saw an old friend of mine
He was smiling when he walked up held a tract out in his hand
Then he told me Jesus loved me and said "so do I, man"
Told me Jesus wants to save me from the fiery pit of hell
Then I told him I was livin' there I knew that place well
I was just about to leave when a love came over me
Like nothin I had felt then we kneeled and we prayed
Right there in the street we prayed

And now, after all those years of falling down
I fell up in the arms of love
When I heard Him call

(Love was calling I was falling)
He was there and I could hear Him callin'
I was fallin' up into His arms
Love was catchin' me that day and somehow
I was fallin' up then
And I'm fallin' up now
I'm fallin' up now

I remember that same feeling I'm reminded everyday
See, Jesus lives inside me and I know He's there to stay
Sometimes I start to fall down just like any other man
But His arms are there to catch me
And lift me up again

After all those years of falling down
I fell up in the arms of love
When I heard Him call

Now - couldn't live without Him
Now - wanna know more about Him
Now - I'm falling once again
Now - falling up to heaven
