Each Time I Fall

I outlive many a dreadful moment
Despite my never unending lament
I rise again each time I fall
Because God always answers my call

Though matter how low I go
Or how terribly hard the blow
Each time I fall I rise
That’s the way to catch life’s prize

When burdensome days come my way
When from life's path I seem to stray
I remind myself of all the other days
I rise each time I fall

The journey is long and sometimes dreary
Oftentimes this is very, very scary
I fall and I grumble, I crumble and I mumble
Always, I rise each time I fall

Whenever I stumble and fall
I hear a voice so gentle, so clear
"You can do it each time my dear
Yes! You can rise after each fall”
