Jesus the King

Jesus Christ is exactly who He said He was
The signpost points to Him

He is the King of kings

The Bible says my King is a seven-way king

Heís the King of the Jews
Heís the King of Israel
Heís the King of righteousness
Heís the King of the ages
Heís the King of heaven
Heís the King of glory
And Heís the King of kings and the Lord of lords

Thatís my King...
Well, I wonder
Do you know Him?

This One the signpost pointed to is the King of kings

No means of measure can define His limitlessness
No far-seeing telescope can bring Him to visibility Ė
the coastline of His sure supply
No barrier can hinder Him from pouring out His blessing
Heís enduringly strong, entirely sincere
Heís eternally steadfast
Heís immortally graceful
Heís imperially powerful
Heís impartially merciful

Do you know Him?

Heís the greatest phenomenon who ever crossed the horizon of this world
Heís Godís Son
Heís a sinnerís Saviour
Heís the centrepiece of civilization
He stands in the solitude of Himself
Heís august and Heís unique
Heís unparalleled, unprecedented
the loftiest idea in literature
the highest personality in philosophy
Heís the supreme problem of higher criticism
the fundamental doctrine of theology
Heís the cardinal necessity of religion
Heís the Miracle of the Ages

He is, He is!

Heís the superlative of everything good you can choose to call Him
Heís the only One qualified to be an all-sufficient Saviour

I you know Him today?

He supplies strength to the weak
Heís available for the tempted and the tried
He sympathizes and He saves
He guards and He guides
He heals the sick
cleanses the lepers
forgives sinners
discharges debtors
delivers the captive
He defends the feeble
blesses the young
He serves the unfortunate
and regards the aged
He rewards the diligent
and He beautifies the meek

I wonder if you know Him...
Well, Heís my King

Heís the Key
Heís the key to knowledge
the well-spring of wisdom
the doorway of deliverance
Heís the pathway of peace
the roadway of righteousness
Heís the highway of holiness
the gateway of glory

Do you know Him?
Well, do you know Him?

His office is manifold
His promise is sure
His life is matchless
His goodness is limitless
His love never changes
His Word is enough
His grace is sufficient
His reign is righteous
And His yoke is easy and His burden is light

I wish I could describe Him to you
Yes, yes, yes!

But Heís indescribable
Heís indescribable
Heís indescribable
Heís incomprehensible
Heís invincible
Heís irresistible
You canít get Him out of your mind
You canít get Him off of your hands
You canít outlive Him and you canít live without Him
The Pharisees couldnít stand Him but they found they couldnít stop Him
Pilate couldnít find any fault in Him
The witnesses couldnít get their testimonies to agree
Herod couldnít kill Him
Death couldnít have Him
and the grave couldnít hold Him

Yeah, thatís my King!
Thatís my King!

For thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory
Forever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever
