458b. At the Name of Jesus

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 Brothers, sisters, name him
with love strong as death,
but with awe and wonder
and with bated breath!
He is God the Saviour,
he is Christ the Lord,
ever to be worshiped,
trusted, and adored.

3 In your hearts enthrone him;
there let him subdue
all that is not holy,
all that is not true:
let us grace support you
in temptation's hour;
and his will enfold you
in its light and power.

4 In his Father's glory
Christ shall come again,
angel hosts proclaiming
his return to reign.
For all wreaths of empire
meet upon his brow,
and our hearts confess him
King of Glory now.
