Lyrics
At the Name of Jesus, every knee shall bow,
Every tongue confess Him King of glory now;
It is his pleasure we should call Him Lord,
Who from the beginning was the mighty Word.
 
Humbled for a season, to receive a name
From the lips of sinners unto whom He came,
Gladly He bore it spotless to the last,
Brought it back victorious when from death He passed.
 
Bore it up triumphant with its human light,
Through all ranks of creatures, to the central height,
Before the throne and to the Father’s breast;
Filled it with the glory of that perfect rest.
 
In your hearts enthrone Him; there let Him subdue
All that is not holy, all that is not true;
Crown as your Captain in temptation’s hour;
Let His will enfold you in its light and power.
