Verse 1:
At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow,
every 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.
Verse 2:
At His voice creation sprang at once to sight,
all the angel faces, all the hosts of light,
Heavenly dominations, stars upon their way,
all the heav'nly orders in their great array.

Verse 3:
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 from death He passed.

Verse 4:
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.

Verse 5:
Christians, this Lord Jesus shall return again,
In His Father's glory, with His angel train;
All the wreaths of empire meet upon his brow,
and our hearts confess him King of glory now.
