|JESUS! exalted far on high,
To Whom a name is given;
A name surpassing every name,
That’s known in earth or Heaven:
|2||Before Whose throne shall every knee
Bow down with one accord;
Before Whose throne shall every tongue
Confess that Thou art Lord.
|3||Jesus! Who in the form of God
Didst equal honour claim,
Yet, to redeem our guilty souls,
Didst stoop to death and shame.
|4||O may that mind in us be formed
Which shone so bright in Thee;
May we be humble, lowly, meek,
From pride and envy free.
|5||May we to others stoop, and learn
To imitate Thy love;
So shall we bear Thine image here,
And share Thy throne above.
|Thomas Cotterill, 1779-1823|
