SOMETHING ‘BOUT A MAN ON BENDED KNEE

SOMETHING ‘BOUT A MAN ON BENDED KNEE


Something ’bout a man on bended knee

Or seeking the face of his Creator

Gathering his composure to be strong for me

Humbling himself before the big game

Who to thank


Vulnerable before his Maker

Knowing where his strength comes from

Not wanting to make a move without Him

Not embarrassed to become undone

Something ’bout a man on bended knee

Who lays his pride aside

Recognizing there’s One greater

Guiding him during the day

Watching him overnight


Something ’bout a man on bended knee

Rising from the ashes valiantly

Recovering from every fall

Admitting he doesn’t know it all

Not afraid to stand again

Strategy in sight
