Loading Passage Reference...

“When I confess that I am unworthy and can do nothing to earn God’s favor, and that it is only by his Grace that I’ve been saved, it always seems to knock me off of my proverbial perch and send me to my knees in true repentance and humility.”

-Stephen Bautista,

from “The Irony of Christian Humility”

On My Knees

I thought if I tried to give you my best

climb up so high above all the rest

to a lofty perch somehow

I'd deserve to finally see you there

I pulled myself up stood on my pride

to get high enough expecting that I would see your face

from my lofty place but there was just thin air


now I'm on my knees and I'm off my perch

with my head out of the clouds

looking through the eyes of humility

I finally see you now here on my knees


I tried to stand up tall enough

to set myself apart but you

desire a broken spirit

and a contrite heart so here I am Lord here I am...


...on my knees and off my perch

with my head out of the clouds

looking through the eyes of humility

I finally see you now I clearly see you now

you are with me now here on my knees
