Lyrics

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

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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