231. Jesus! exalted far on high

1 Jesus! exalted far on high,
To whom a name is given--
A name surpassing every name
That's known in earth or heaven!

2 Before thy throne shall every knee
Bow down with one accord;
Before thy throne shall every tongue
Confess that thou art Lord.

3 Jesus! thou, in the form of God,
Didst equal honor claim;
Yet, to redeem our guilty souls,
Didst stoop to death and shame!

4 Oh, may that mind in us be formed,
Which shone so bright in thee--
An humble, meek, and lowly mind,
From pride and envy free!

5 To others we would stoop, and learn
To emulate thy love;
So shall we bear thine image here,
And share thy throne above.
