Volcano is on a distinguished road
Default If Some Day...

If some day you see me knelt down, it will be for raising up someone who fell down.

Could you please check my sentence?

... it will be to raise up someone...

to + infinitive describes purpose - ie why you do something. Other examples :
I'm going out to do some shopping.
I phoned John to tell him about the meeting.


for + gerund = use - ie what something is used for.
Don't use that liquid - it's for cleaning the floor, not for washing dishes

The rest is OK grammatically, but sounds a bit stilted. It's difficult to comment without knowing the context, but I'd probably say something like : If ever you see me kneeling down, it will be because I'm helping someone else get up.
