Bow the Knee

The only person I have ever heard sing this is by Kirk Talley.  Since he is from East Tennesee and I lived there for many years, I am more familiar with him and the Telley Trio.  The words are powerful and Kirk does a wonderful, controlled job of recording it.  Words in bold is my added emphasis. It is on my playlist. Scripture reference is Philippians 2:10

Bow the Knee

By Brian Edwards, KME Publishing

Recorded by Kirk Talley on the album, “What’s Missing Here.”

In a lowly cattle stable In the town of Bethlehem

A baby is born to save fallen man

But He was rejected, the crowd called “Crucify”

And as a humble man, Jesus had to die.

Placed in a borrowed tomb, but just until day three

When out from the grave He arose in mighty victory

Died as a lamb, but rose as a Lion, the

Conqueror of Calvary

Death Bowed the knee!

Chorus: 

Bow the knee to the Lord of Lords and King of Kings

Bow the knee, as Heaven’s angels start to sing:

Holy, Holy, to the to the Christ of Calvary,

Let all Heaven and earth, to King Jesus, Bow the knee.

I can see old Satan as he enters the room,

His time is almost over, soon he’ll meet his doom

He will live in hell for all eternity

But before he leaves Christ’s presence,

He must bow the knee.

Now this is something that Satan’s never done,

What humiliation to bow before God’s Son

His legs begin to tremble, his fear is plain to see

And then, before the Throne of God,

Satan bows his knee.

Bow the knee, to the Lord of Lord and

King of kings,

Bow the knee as Heaven’s angels start to sing:

Holy, Holy, to the Christ of Calvary,

All of Heaven and earth, to King Jesus

Bow the knee.
