At the name of Jesus

At the name of Jesus
every knee shall bow,
every tongue confess him
King of glory now;
this the Father’s pleasure,
that we call him Lord,
who from the beginning
was the mighty Word.

2. At his voice creation
sprang at once to sight,
all the angel faces,
all the hosts of light;
suns and moons in orbit,
stars upon their way,
all the heavenly orders,
in their great array.

3. Humbled for a season,
to receive a name
from the lips of sinners
unto whom he came;
faithfully he bore it
spotless to the last,
brought it back victorious
when from death he passed.

4. Name him, Christians, name him,
with love strong as death,
but with awe and wonder,
and with bated breath;
he is God the Saviour,
he is Christ the Lord,
ever to be worshipped,
trusted and adored.

5. In your hearts enthrone him;
there let him subdue
all that is not holy,
all that is not true;
crown him as your captain
in temptation’s hour,
let his will enfold you
in its light and power.

6. Christians, this Lord Jesus
shall return again,
with his Father’s glory
evermore to reign;
rulers of the nations
at his throne shall bow,
and our hearts confess him
King of glory now.
