Scripture Verse

At the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in Heaven and on earth and under the earth. Philippians 2:10


Words: Ben­ja­min Wall­in, Ev­an­gel­i­cal Hymns and Songs 1750. The words al­so ap­peared, con­sid­er­a­bly mo­di­fied, in the Gos­pel Ma­ga­zine, June 1776, and sub­se­quent­ly passed in­to oth­er col­lec­tions.

Music: Con­way Eng­lish tune (🔊 pdf nwc) (re­peats last line of each verse).

If you know where to get a good pic­ture of Wall­in (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), would you ?


Hail, mighty Jesus! how divine
Is Thy victorious sword!
The stoutest rebel must resign
At Thy commanding word.

How deep the wounds these arrows give!
They pierce the hardest heart.
The smiles of grace the slain revive,
And joy succeeds the smart.

Still gird Thy sword upon Thy thigh;
Ride with majestic sway;
Go forth, great Prince, triumphantly,
And make Thy foes obey.

And when Thy victories are complete—
When all the chosen race
Shall round the throne of glory meet
To sing Thy conquering grace—

O may my humble soul be found
Among that glorious throng;
And I with them Thy praise will sound
In Heaven’s immortal song.
