Jesus Christ Is Lord

He did not hold to his equality with God

Author: Ken Canedo
Tune: [He did not hold to his equality with God]
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

Jesus Christ is Lord.
Jesus Christ is Lord.

1 He did not hold to his equality with God,
for he did empty himself to be as one of us,
to be as one of us. [Refrain]

2 He chose the will of God through death upon a cross,
and God did raise him up, exalting him on high,
exalting him on high. [Refrain]

3 And so God gave to him a name above all names.
May all in heaven and earth proclaim him now as Lord,
proclaim him now as Lord. [Refrain]
