If I Stand

I woke up early this morning, and woke up singing this song by the late Rich Mullins. I love the wordplay in his poetry. Standing is usually associated with effort, but here it refers to resting on God's promises. And falling usually denotes falling away from God, but here it indicates dependence upon God's grace. How wonderful.

If I stand let me stand on the promise
That you will pull me through
And if I can't, let me fall on the grace
That first brought me to You
And if I sing let me sing for the joy
That has born in me these songs
And if I weep let it be as a man
Who is longing for his home

You can listen it here. Enjoy.
