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.
