(a)

The Father glorifies his Son.

He has God’s own glory!

Christ is exalted above all.

Because he was worthy!

(b)

His name is above all names.

Jesus is over all!

All will concede Jesus is Lord.

Jesus is Lord of all!

(c)

Exalted to the Father’s right.

Our Lord’s at God’s right hand!

Seat of honor, might, and glory –

Before of which we’ll stand!

(d)

Jesus is the only way to God.

He stands before God’s throne!

No one can receive salvation –

Lest going through God’s Son!

(e)

God gave his Son the universe.

Dominion over all!

An eternal inheritance.

Beneath his feet are all!

(f)

Jesus Christ will return to earth.

He will come suddenly!

With angels and the righteous dead.

With great might and glory!

(g)

Jesus will resurrect us all –

Both the good and the bad!

He will judge all men and women –

To be saved or condemned!

(h)

He will replace heaven and earth.

A new heaven and earth!

The old versions obsoleted,

The new: No sin, no death!
