"You Get Tall When You Fall On Your Knees"

This is a song that the children sang during the musical at the conclusion of Music Camp this past two weeks.   The musical is called “The Slingshot Heard ‘Round The World” and it is published by Praise Gathering Music Group.   There were approx. 120 children, and close to 60 workers that helped put this together in 2 weeks….3 hours a day, 5 days a week for 2 weeks!   AMAZING if you ask me 🙂    Anyhow, this is one of the songs that the children memorized and sang beautifully during the musical.   On Friday night, I liked the song, but I mostly was watching my kiddos….not paying that close of attention to the content.  On Sunday evening I was able to really focus on the content.   This song was so incredibly powerful to me!

“You Get Tall When You Fall On Your Knees”

Words and Music by Dave Noel

Arr. by Jay Rouse

“I’ve got a dream that’s bigger than me.

They say “There’s no way.  You’ll never succeed.”

But I have a God; on Him I can call.

You get tall when you fall on your knees.

CHORUS:

You get tall when you fall on your knees.

You get tall when you fall on your knees.

Problems start shrinking the moment I’m thinking of prayer, thinking of prayer.

You get tall when you fall on your knees.

You get tall when you fall on your knees.

Facing a giant, here’s what to do:  take it to Jesus;

you’ll see it’s true.

You get tall when you fall on your knees.

You get tall when you fall on your knees.

And if, like King David, when giants appear, we run to the battle in spite of our fear,

God’s power will conquer what stands in our way.

Our God will work wonders for those who will pray!

CHORUS

I think that the message of this song is so awesome!   When we go to God in prayer, and lay all of our concerns, anxiety, ….everything good and bad at HIS feet, He carries us through……   I just love the image that this song gives!   And what an awesome message for our kids to learn at such a young age, as well.
