At the Name of Jesus

Author: Caroline M. Noel Meter: 6.5.6.5 D Appears in 232 hymnals Scripture: Acts 1:11 Lyrics: 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 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. 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; 4 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. 5 In your hearts enthrone him; there let him subdue all that is not holy, all that is not true. Look to him, your Savior, in temptation's hour; let his will enfold you in its light and power. 6 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.
