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
