Bend the Knee (Proskenein)





Surrender to the Righteous One
See your integrity undone
Though bound by self you can be free
But only if you bend the knee.

Before the worthy one bow down
Take up your cross; give Him the crown
Then you shall have the victory
But only when you bend the knee.

Till every knee shall bow And every tongue confess
This world will never know The fruit of righteousness
One day before His throne When prostrate we shall see
We’ll know as we are known ‘Neath Christ’s authority

Give up your weak and poor desires
Embrace the things that Christ requires
Justice, mercy, humility
Are ours if we but bend the knee.

Now set your mind on things above
And bow before His perfect love
The heights of heaven you may see
But only if you bend the knee

Perceive the true reality
With lifted eyes from bended knee
Then you shall have the victory
But only when you bend the knee.
