Every Knee Shall Bow Lyrics

1 Jesus the meek and lowly
Dwelleth in light on high;
Blessed is he and holy,
Ruler of earth and sky.


Refrain:
Ev'ry knee to him shall bow,
Ev'ry creature and tongue confess
That he is the Lord, the mighty Lord,
Bearing the sceptre of righteousness.


2 He who, despised, afflicted,
Carried our weight of sin,
Opens the gates of glory,
Welcomes the faithful in. [Refrain]


3 He who, alone, in sorrow,
Prayed at the midnight hour,
Weareth a crown eternal
Won by his conqu'ring power. [Refrain]


4 He is the Rock of Ages,
Rock where the soul may hide,
Safe from the storm and tempest,
Over life's rolling tide. [Refrain]
