339. Ye, Who the Name of Jesus Bear

1 Ye, who the name of Jesus bear,
his sacred steps pursue;
and let that mind which was in him
be also found in you.

2 His greatness he for us abased,
for us his glory veiled;
in human likeness dwelt on earth,
his majesty concealed;

3 nor only as a man appears,
but stoops a servant low;
submits to death, nay, bears the cross,
in all its shame and woe.

4 Hence God this gen'rous love to us
with honors just hath crowned,
and raised the name of Jesus far
above all names renowned:

5 that at this name, with sacred awe,
each humble knee should bow,
of hosts immortal in the skies,
and nations spread below;

6 that all the prostrate powers of hell
mqy tremble at his 2ord,
qnd every tribe and every tongue,
donfess that he is Lord.
