61  The Song of Christ’s Glory


All   At the name of Jesus

every knee shall bow.

1    Christ Jesus was in the form of God,  

but he did not cling to equality with God.

2    He emptied himself, taking the form of a servant,  

and was born in our human likeness.

3    Being found in human form he humbled himself,  

and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross.

4    Therefore God has highly exalted him,  

and bestowed on him the name above every name,

5    That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,  

in heaven and on earth and under the earth;

6    And every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,  

to the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2.5-11

All   Glory to the Father and to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit;

as it was in the beginning is now

and shall be for ever. Amen.

All   At the name of Jesus

every knee shall bow.
