1 In 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 At His voice, creation

Sprang at once to sight,

All the angel faces

All the hosts of light

Thrones and Dominations,

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 be passed


4 Bore it up triumphant,

With its human light

Through all ranks of creatures,

To the central height,

To the throne of Godhead

To the Father’s breast,

Filled it with the glory.

Of that perfect rest.


5 In your hearts enthrone Him;

They let Him subdue

All that is not holy;

All that are not true;

Crown Him as your Captain

In temptation’s hour,

Let His Will enfold you

In its light and power


6 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
