Fallen (It is one of those days)

Heaven bend to take my hand and lead me through the fire — Be the long-awaited answer to a long and painful fight — Truth be told I’ve tried my best but somewhere along the way I got caught up in all there was to offer — And the cost was so much more than I could bear though I’ve tried

I’ve fallen I have sunk so low

I’ve messed up, Better I should know

So don’t come ’round here and

Tell me I told you so

We all begin with good intent when love is raw and young — We believe that we can change ourselves the past can be undone — But we carry on our back the burden time always reveals in the lonely light of morning — in the wound that would not heal — It’s the bitter taste of losing everything I held so dear

I’ve fallen I have sunk so low

I’ve messed up Better I should know,

So don’t come ’round here and

Tell me “I told you so…” 

Heaven bend to take my hand I’ve nowhere left to turn — I’m lost to those I thought were friends to everyone I know — Oh they turn their heads embarrassed pretend that they don’t see — that it’s one misstep one slip before you know it — and there doesn’t seem a way to be redeemed though I’ve tried

I’ve fallen I have sunk so low

I’ve messed up Better I should know

So don’t come round here and

Tell me, “I told you so…”

by Sarah McLachlan – from Afterglow – “Fallen”

  1. God loves you, Nick … and there’s something about His love that moves outside of our comprehension … it never fails. He is always faithful. Our ups and downs do not shift his love one way or the other. Carry on, my friend… you’ve reason to begin again.

  2. I’ve felt this song — too many times. It’s a bad feeling. Sorry you felt it enough to post it.

    I have no idea what’s going on with you, but I know you have help — Big Help.

  3. JD, you are a treasure to the kingdom of God. I thank Papa for you all the time.

    Were you in Jason(?) Thornton’s lecture at ISWW last year? I just downloaded it and listened to it, and his thoughts on Love Never Fails just blew me away. You’re absolutely right, and I’m glad Abba loves me enough to let me fall down at his feet and cry sometimes because of how beautiful He is and how beautiful I don’t feel.

    Alicia… you and I have been friends for long and long… one day I’ll have the chance to tell you why I was grieving last night. You won’t be surprised, and I’m honored by your presence, your comfort, and your earnestness in love.
