Scripture Verse

God…hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth. And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9–11

His name hath God ex­alt­ed
Above the names of earth;
No oth­er name in Hea­ven
Compares with its great worth;
And at the name of Je­sus,
Low ev­ery knee shall bend,
And ev­ery tongue con­fess Him,
Whose reign shall ne­ver end!


O Christ, Thou King of Zi­on,
We bow be­fore Thy throne;
We praise Thy name for­ev­er,
We wor­ship Thee alone.

Christ is the King of Zion,
Of kings the one great King,
And ev­ery tribe and na­tion
To Him shall trib­ute bring;
The hea­then He shall con­quer,
The earth from sea to sea
Shall be His own pos­ses­sion—
Yes, Christ shall vic­tor be.


O Christ, speed on Thy king­dom,
And let Thy will be done
On earth, as ’tis in Hea­ven,
Where Thou art king alone;
May tid­ings of sal­va­tion,
Soon spread the earth around,
And ov­er land to ocean,
Thy praise alone re­sound.
