‘Freely I Bend My Knees’ is a catchy contemporary song embodying the life of Abba Shenouda. In his early years, Abba Shenouda was a simple country boy who tended his sheep and lived to serve the Lord.
This song shows the humility Abba Shenouda displayed when required to stay in the monastery and then defend the Church against Nestorius.
“Freely I bend my knees and pray…Yours is all honour and praise”.
With these beautifully curated lyrics, we are reminded that we too should willingly submit to God and His plan. In doing so, we can gain the gifts to set the world ablaze with God’s spirit.
