499. At the Name of Jesus

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 through 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 Godhead,
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.

5 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.

6 Christians, this Lord Jesus
Shall return again,
With his Father's glory,
O'er the earth to reign;
Love and faithful service
We his people vow,
And our hearts confess him
King of glory now.
