Come, Bow at Jesus' Feet

Representative Text

1 Oh, come receive the gospel light,
Salvation’s plan is all complete;
Oh, wash thy crimson garments white,
Come, bow at Jesus’ feet.

Come, bow at His feet,
Come, bow at His feet;
He will save thee from sin,
Come bow at Jesus’ feet.

2 Forsake thy wretched path of woe,
Spurn not the Savior’s love so sweet;
The blood of Christ doth freely flow,
Come, bow at Jesus’ feet. [Refrain]

3 The angel waiteth at thy heart,
He bringeth stores of grace replete;
Oh, hear that voice, say not, “Depart”;
Come, bow at Jesus’ feet. [Refrain]

4 Why thus remain content in sin?
Canst thou, condemned, thy Savior meet?
Oh, gladly let Him enter in,
Come, bow at Jesus’ feet. [Refrain]

5 Oh, sinner, see, He lingers still,
Thy restless soul He waits to greet;
Resist no more His holy will,
Come, bow at Jesus’ feet. [Refrain]
