At the Name of Jesus

Full Text

1 At the name of Jesus
ev'ry knee shall bow,
ev'ry 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 it
spotless to the last,
brought it back victorious
when from death he passed;

3 bore it up triumphant
with its human light,
through all ranks of creatures,
to the central height,
to the throne of God-head,
to the Father's breast;
filled it with the glory
of that perfect rest.

4 Name him, Christians, name him -
strong your love as death -
but with awe and wonder,
and with life-filled breath;
he is God the Savior,
he is Christ the Lord,
ever to be worshiped,
evermore adored.
