Scripture: Philippians 2:5-11
Theme: Christ the King/Ascension
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. 2. 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; 3. 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. 4. Christians, this Lord Jesus Shall return again, With His Father's glory O'er the earth to reign; For all wreaths of empire Meet upon His brow, And our hearts confess Him King of glory now.
