Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

He is Lord, He is Lord!

Ev'ry knee shall bow, ev'ry tongue confess

Scripture References: st. = Phil. 2: 10-11 One of numerous anonymous Scripture songs arising out of the charismatic movement during the 1960s and following, this popular song is drawn from the well-known confession of faith recorded in Philippians 2: 10-11. There Paul appears to be quoting from an early Christian hymn that was used as a profession of faith. The following are additional stanzas, also anonymous, printed in the British Methodist Hymns and Psalms and in The Worshiping Church (1990); these may be freely reprinted in church bulletins:
He is King, he is King! He will draw all nations to him, he is King; and the time shall be when the world shall sing that Jesus Christ is King! He is Love, he is Love! He has shown us by his life that he is Love. All his people sing with one voice of joy that Jesus Christ is Love! He is Life, he is Life! He has died to set us free and he is Life; and he calls us all to live evermore, for Jesus Christ is Life!
These additional stanzas use phrases from John's gospels to extol Christ as the king who draws all nations to him (John 12:32), as the source and model of love (1 John 3:16), and as the surety for eternal life (1 John 5:11). Liturgical Use: As a sung profession of faith in many different times and places of worship; during the Easter season; Lord's Supper. --Psalter Hymnal Handbook
