Phillipians 2:5-11 (2:31)

by Jason Silver

 

This section from the letter to the Philipians in the Bible is thought to be an ancient hymn of the church. Unfortunately the melody is lost, but I thought it would be a fun challenge to put it to a new tune, and to make it singable enough to be used in worship.


Lyrics

Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus,

Who, being, in very nature God did not
Consider equality with God something to
Be used to his own advantage.

Rather he made himself nothing by
Taking the very nature of– of a servant,
Being made in human likeness.

And being found in appearance as a man,
He humbled himself by becoming obedient
To death— even death on a cross.

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place,
And gave him the name that is above every name,
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
In heaven and earth and under the earth,
And every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
To the glory of God
The Father.
