Philippians 2:10
Bent Knees

10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

That name once known on earth at first and now is used in heaven;
Angel knees that long ago bent to Him now bend at His name given,
When one of their own company came to earth to tell a man,
His name shall be called “Jesus” before he returned to Emmanuel’s land.

Shepherds at His birth bowed knees to Jesus and His name.
When wise men came at a later time, all of them did the same
Simeon, Anna and others, who had waited for Him to come,
All rejoiced to honor Him, speaking of Him to everyone.

Down through the generations of man there always have been believers,
Who, though only just a few in number, still call Him our Lord Jesus.
They realize there are but a few who acknowledge His authority;
In spite of all the world might say, they’ll stay with His minority.

Angels, men, even demons, know the power of His name.
He is no usurper; He has authority over every claim.
Those who are false-christs will know they’ll be exposed
As counterfeits by God Himself and those who He has chose.

As I bow my knees each day and all around the world,
Saints of God bow their knees too, we all know Christ as Lord.
A day is coming we are sure, when the knees of every one,
Will bow before the name of Jesus – the Judge is God the Son.

“We will gather together today Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. By Thy grace we will offer our praises and prayers in His name. When we eat our food we will give thanks in His name. When we preach the Gospel we will do so in His name. And here this morning I offer my thoughts and words, and pray in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.”
