"He obeyed God and even died on a cross." 

Christ was truly God.
But he did not try to remain
     equal with God.
He gave up everything
     and became a slave,
when he became
     like one of us.

Christ was humble.
He obeyed God and even died
     on a cross.
Then God gave Christ
     the highest place
and honored his name
     above all others.

So at the name of Jesus
     everyone will bow down,
those in heaven, on earth,
     and under the earth.
And to the glory
     of God the Father
everyone will openly agree,
     "Jesus Christ is Lord!"
