At The Name Of Jesus

At The Name Of Jesus

Song based on the Bible verse:
Philippians 2:10
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,

Song written by:
Original in English: Caroline M. Noel

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

Mighty and mysterious in the highest height
God from everlasting very light of light
In the Father’s bosom with the spirit blest
Love in love eternal rest in perfect rest

At His voice creation sprang at once to sight
All the angel faces all the hosts of light
Thrones and dominations stars upon their way
All the heavenly orders in their great array

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

Bore it up triumphant with its human light
Through all ranks of creatures to the central height
To the throne of Godhead to the Father’s breast
Filled it with the glory of that perfect rest

Name Him brothers name Him with love strong as death
But with awe and wonder and with bated breath
He is God the Savior He is Christ the Lord
Ever to be worshipped trusted and adored
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

Brothers this Lord Jesus shall return again
With His Father’s glory with His angel train
For all wreaths of empire meet upon His brow
And our hearts confess Him King of glory now
