1 At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow,
every tongue confess him King of glory now.
'Tis the Father's pleasure we should call him Lord,
who from the beginning was the mighty Word.
2 Humbled for a season, to receive a name
from the lips of sinners unto whom he came.
Faithfully he bore i, spotless to the last,
brought it back victorious when from death he passed.
3 In your hearts enthrone him; there let him subdue
all that is not holy, all that is not true.
Crown him as your sovereign in temptation's hour,
let his will enfold you in its mighty power.
4 Christians, this Lord Jesus shall return again
with the Father's glory, when he comes to reign.
For all earthly powers soon to him must bow,
so let us confess him King of glory now.
