Let your mindset be the same
As that of Je­sus Christ;
Though in very nature God,
He did not cling to His rights.


He became a man,
In humility,
Was obedient unto death,
And Lord of all will be.

He made nothing of himself,
Took on a servant’s form;
Found in likeness as a man,
On the cross He died forlorn.


Therefore God exalted Christ
Up to the highest place,
Gave the name above all names;
All His shame, He did erase.


One day at the name of Christ
All men will bow their knee.
Those in Hea­ven, on the earth,
And beneath, their Lord will see.


Every tongue will then confess
That Je­sus Christ is Lord.
He will be exalted e’er,
To the glo­ry of our God.
