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 whose throne shall every knee
Bow down with one accord;
Before Whose throne shall every tongue
Confess that Thou art Lord;
3 Jesus, Who in the form of God,
Didst equal honor claim,
Yet, to redeem our guilty souls,
Didst stoop to death and shame!
4 O 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 May we to others stoop, and learn
To emulate Thy love;
So shall we bear Thine image here,
And share Thy throne above.
