Verse 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.

Verse 2

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.

Verse 3

Name him, brothers, 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.

Verse 4

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.

Verse 5

Brothers, this Lord Jesus
Shall return again,
With his Father's glory,
With his angel-train;
For all wreaths of empire
Meet upon his brow,
And our hearts confess him
King of glory now.
