This is how you have the lyrics to "_Jesus"_ 
(http://ww21.tiki.ne.jp/~wildside/tabs/jesus.html)
on your Lou Reed Guitar Archive:


        Jesus, help me find my proper  place
        Jesus, help me find my  proper place

        Help me in my  weakness
        'cause I've  falling out of  grace

        Jesus,  Jesus


The word falling should be fallen.

This is the past tense of the word  "fall".
You say, "I will fall, tomorrow."  "I am falling, now."
And, "I have fallen, yesterday."
 
So the lyric should  read:


        Jesus,  help me find my proper place
        Jesus, help me find my proper  place

        Help me in my  weakness
        'cause I've  fallen out of  grace

        Jesus,  Jesus
