Slow Down and See Jesus
Updated: Mar 26, 2020
Several weeks ago the Chancel Choir sang this anthem “Slow Down.” During rehearsals we had several discussions about the text. The composer, Edwin T. Childs, is a highly trained church musician who is retired from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago.The choir found real comfort in the words. I hope you will as well.
The words are:
Slow down and see Jesus
Slow down and see the Lord face to face
Slow down Oh foolish one with eyes so blinded
Slow down and see His face
Slow down and hear Jesus
Slow down and hear His words, soft and clear
Slow down the noise that crowds our the Savior’s speaking
Slow down and hear His voice
Slow down and feel Jesus
His hands and feet were wounded for you
Slow down you troubled soul and busy mind
Slow down and feel the peace that He gives.
