AT the name of Jesusevery knee shall bow,every tongue confess HimKing of glory now.’Tis the Father’s pleasurewe should call Him Lord,who from the beginningwas the mighty Word.2 Humbled for a season,
to receive a namefrom the lips of sinnersunto whom He came;faithfully He bore itspotless to the last,brought it back victoriouswhen from death He passed.3 Name Him, brothers, 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 worshipped,trusted, and adored.4 In your hearts enthrone Him;there let Him subdueall that is not holy,all that is not true;crown Him as your captainin temptation’s hour;let His will enfold youin its light and power.5 Brothers, this Lord Jesusshall return againwith His Father’s glory,with His angel train;for all wreaths of empiremeet upon His brow,and our hearts confess HimKing of glory now.
1 ¶ Who has believed what they heard from us?And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?2 For he grew up before him like a young plant,and like a root out of dry ground;he had no form or majesty that we should look at him,and no beauty that we should desire him.3 He was despised and rejected by men;a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief;and as one from whom men hide their faceshe was despised, and we esteemed him not.4 ¶ Surely he has borne our griefsand carried our sorrows;yet we esteemed him stricken,smitten by God, and afflicted.5 But he was wounded for our transgressions;he was crushed for our iniquities;upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,and with his stripes we are healed.6 All we like sheep have gone astray;we have turned every one to his own way;and the LORD has laid on himthe iniquity of us all.7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,yet he opened not his mouth;like a lamb that is led to the slaughter,and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent,so he opened not his mouth.8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away;and as for his generation, who consideredthat he was cut off out of the land of the living,stricken for the transgression of my people?9 And they made his grave with the wickedand with a rich man in his death,although he had done no violence,and there was no deceit in his mouth.10 ¶ Yet it was the will of the LORD to crush him;he has put him to grief;when his soul makes an offering for sin,he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days;the will of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.11 Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied;by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant,make many to be accounted righteous,and he shall bear their iniquities.12 Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many,and he shall divide the spoil with the strong,because he poured out his soul to deathand was numbered with the transgressors;yet he bore the sin of many,and makes intercession for the transgressors.
All praise to Him, the God of lightWho formed the mountains by His mightAll praise to Him Who names the starsThat sing His fame in skies afarAll praise to Him Who reigns in loveWho guides the galaxies aboveYet bends to hear our every prayerWith sovereign pow’r and tender careAll praise to Him whose love is seenIn Christ the Son, the Servant KingWho left behind His glorious throneTo pay the ransom for His ownAll praise to Him Who humbly cameTo bear our sorrow, sin, and shameWho lived to die, Who died to riseThe all-sufficient sacrificeAll praise to Him whose pow’r impartsThe love of God within our heartsThe Spirit of all truth and peaceThe fount of joy and holinessTo Father, Son, and Spirit nowOur souls we lift, our wills we bowTo You, the triune God, we raiseWith loving hearts our song of praise
1 So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy,2 complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.3 Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,7 but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name,10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Mighty God, while angels bless you,
may a mortal praise your name?
Lord of men, as well as angels,
you are every creature’s theme.
Lord of every land and nation,
Ancient of eternal days,
sounded through the wide creation
be your just and lawful praise.2. For the grandeur of your nature,
grand beyond a seraph’s thought;
for created works of power,
works with skill and kindness wrought;
for your providence, that governs
all your empire’s wide domain,
speeds an angel, guides a sparrow,
blessed be your gentle reign.3. But your rich, your free redemption,shining through the ages long—
thought is poor, and poor expression,
who dare sing that awesome song?
Brightness of the Father’s glory,
shall your praise unuttered be?
Break, my tongue, such guilty silence,
sing the Lord who died for me!4. From the highest throne in glory,
to the cross of deepest woe,
all to ransom guilty captives,
flow, my praise, for ever flow!
Go, return, immortal Saviour,
yours the victory, yours alone;
soon return and reign for ever,
claim the kingdom, take your throne!
THOU who wast rich beyond all splendour,all for love’s sake becamest poor;thrones for a manger didst surrender,sapphire-paved courts for stable floor.Thou who wast rich beyond all splendour,all for love’s sake becamest poor.2 Thou who art God beyond all praising,all for love’s sake becamest man;stooping so low, but sinners raisingheavenwards by Thine eternal plan.Thou who art God beyond all praising,all for love’s sake becamest man.3 Thou who art love beyond all telling,Saviour and King, we worship Thee.Immanuel, within us dwelling,make us what Thou wouldst have us be.Thou who art love beyond all telling,Saviour and King, we worship Thee.
MAY the mind of Christ my Saviourlive in me from day to day,by His love and power controllingall I do and say.2 May the Word of God dwell richlyin my heart from hour to hour,so that all may see I triumphonly through His power.3 May the peace of God my Fatherrule my life in everything,that I may be calm to comfortsick and sorrowing.4 May the love of Jesus fill meas the waters fill the sea;Him exalting, self abasing,this is victory.5 May I run the race before me,strong and brave to face the foe,looking only unto Jesusas I onward go.6 May his beauty rest upon meas I seek the lost to win,and may they forget the channel,seeing only Him.
