Because We All Fall...






We all fall;
Suffer grief, shame and hurt
We should never kick another
Lying in the dirt

But kneel with compassion
Lend a loving hand
Because we all fall and therefore
We understand

We all fall;
Not the skin-the-knee-kind
But that broken heart, broken spirit
Broken mind

Clean on our own
Because we all fall; none are qualified

 We all fall;
Still, we are mercy-shod
Therefore we can all get up again
But by the grace of God
