We Fall Down , words and music by Chris Tomlin, was produced in 1998.
It is a great worship song and I feel like I've played it for years on the worship team. When the song leader has a tenor voice, we usually play songs in the Key of E or G. I'm an alto and love to harmonize the melody. My voice range is comfortable in C and D. One of the greatest and powerful, dramatic effect to a song is when you modulate up. I don't mean, "push the modulate button," but rather, knowing how to change the chords (and usually it's the chorus) 1/2 step to 1 step up.

Here are the chords that I play below in the Key of E and D.
The first keyboard chord chart is an easy version of what you'll find online.

1. We Fall Down

Verse 1:

D                 A       D            G       D A
We fall down, we lay our crown at the feet of Jesus
D                     A         D           G       D A
The greatness of His mercy and love at the feet of Jesus


Chorus:

D         G        D A
We cry Holy, Holy, Holy
D         G        D A
We cry Holy, Holy, Holy
D         G        D A  G   A    D
We cry Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lamb


Verse 2:

D                      A         D            G       D A
No more fears, You've dried our tears at the feet of Jesus
D                 A          D         G       D A
Grace abounds to all who've found the feet of Jesus 
 
2. We Fall Down (from one of my books)

Verse 1:

D                 A       Bm7            G       Em
We fall down, we lay our crown at the feet of Jesus
D                     A         Bm7           G      A
The greatness of His mercy and love at the feet of Jesus


Chorus:

D/F#  Gmaj7  D/F#  Em
We cry Holy, Holy, Holy
D/F#  Gmaj7  D/F#  Em
We cry Holy, Holy, Holy
Bm7 A  Gmaj7 D/F#  Em   Asus A    D
We cry Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lamb


If you want to play the song one whole step up, here it is in E.

3. We Fall Down

Verse 1:

E                 B       C#m7           A       F#m
We fall down, we lay our crown at the feet of Jesus
E                     B         C#m7           A       B
The greatness of His mercy and love at the feet of Jesus


Chorus:

E/G#   Am7    E/G# F#m

E/G#    Am7   E/G# F#m
We cry Holy, Holy, Holy
C#m7 B   Am7  E/G# F#m  Bsus B   E  A/E  E  D2
