Jesus, exalted far on high

Full Text

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.

Amen.

Author: Thomas Cotterill

Thomas Cotterill was born in 1779; studied at S. John's College, Cambridge, graduating M.A.; ordained in 1806, and enterred upon parochial work at Tutbury; afterwards removed to Lane End, where he remained for nine years among the Potteries; in 1817, became perpetual Curate of S. Paul's, Sheffield. He died in 1823. He was the author of several books; among them, "A Selection of Psalms and Hymns for Public and Private Use, adapted to the Services of the Church of England." In the preparation of this collection (the 8th ed., 1819), he had the assistance of Montgomery, who in this work did what he condemned in others, viz., altering and remodeling other authors' hymns. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A., 1872.… Go to person page >

Notes

Jesus, exalted far on high. T. Cotterill. [Circumcision. The Holy Name, Jesus.] Published in the Uttoxeter Selection, 1805, and again in Cotterill's Selection of Psalms & Hymns, 1st edition, 1810, in 5 stanzas of 4 lines. It has attained to extensive use, and is usually given in an unaltered form, as in the Oxford edition of Mercer's Church Psalter & Hymn Book. In Kennedy, 1863, No. 605, “O Thou Who in the form of God," is an altered form of a part of this hymn, and begins with stanza iii.

BEATITUDO

Composed by John B. Dykes (PHH 147), BEATITUDO was published in the revised edition of Hymns Ancient and Modern (1875), where it was set to Isaac Watts' "How Bright Those Glorious Spirits Shine." Originally a word coined by Cicero, BEATITUDO means "the condition of blessedness." Like many of Dykes's…
