TEXTS AND TUNES proposed for inclusion in the Hymn Sing Hymnal
At the Name of Jesus1 At the name of Jesus Ev'ry knee shall bow, Ev'ry tongue confess Him King of glory now. ’Tis the Father’s pleasure We should call Him Lord, Who from the beginning Was the mighty Word. 2 At His voice creation Sprang at once to sight, All the angel faces, All the hosts of light, Thrones and bright dominions, Stars upon their way, All the heav'nly orders In their great array. 3 Humbled for a season, To receive a name From the lips of sinners Unto whom He came, Faithfully He bore it Spotless to the last, Brought it back victorious When from death He passed; 4 Bore it up triumphant With its human light, Through all ranks of creatures To the central height, To the throne of Godhead, To the Father’s breast, Filled it with the glory Of that perfect rest. 5 In your hearts enthrone Him; There let Him subdue All that is not holy, All that is not true: Crown Him as your Captain In temptation's hour; Let His will enfold you In its light and pow'r. 6 Christians, this Lord Jesus Shall return again In His Father's glory, With His angel train; For all wreaths of empire Meet upon His brow, And our hearts confess Him King of glory now. 7 Glory then to Jesus, Who, the Prince of light, To a world in darkness Brought the gift of sight: Praise to God the Father; In the Spirit's love Praise we all together Him who reigns above.
Tune: Although this hymn has been set to many different tunes in recent years, the overwhelmingly predominant pairing is with KING'S WESTON. I'm inclined to add the second and third most frequent tunes, EVELYNS and CAMBERWELL, both of which are paired with the text predominantly in UK/Commonwealth hymnals.
