We Fall On You
We fall on You like Saul on the sword,
We fall for life, we fall for words,
Spoken to us in anger, spoken to us from hurt.
We fall on You when life makes no sense,
When those who do wrong get no recompense,
Their garment of violence covers them.
We fall on You when flesh rises up,
We fall with crying, we fall face first,
There is no condemnation in You.
We fall on You like deer for the brook,
We come with hunger, yearning deep thirst,
Our soul satisfied only in You.
We fall on you when our enemy—death,
Has stolen our life, has taken our breath,
You are the resurrection and the life.
