The Bible says, my king is a seven way king:
He’s the king of the Jews, that’s a racial king
He’s the king of Israel, that’s a national king
He’s the king of righteousness
He’s the king of the ages
He’s the king of heaven
He’s the king of glory
He’s the King of kings and He’s the Lord of Lords!
THAT’S MY KING!!
Well, I wonder, do you know him?
David said: “The heavens declare the glory of God and the fundaments showeth His handiwork.”
My king is a sovereign King:
No means of measure can define His limitless love,
No farseeing telescope can bring into visibility the coastline of his shoreless supply,
No barrier can hinder Him from pouring out His blessing!
He’s enduringly strong; He’s entirely sincere,
He’s eternally steadfast;
He’s immorally graceful,
He’s impurely powerful;
He’s impartially merciful…
Do you know him???
He’s the greatest phenomenon that has ever
crossed the horizon of this world,
He’s God’s Son, He’s the sinner’s Savior,
He’s the centrepiece of civilization,
He stands in the solitude of Himself,
He’s all this and He is unique…
He’s unparalleled; He’s unprecedented,
He’s the loftiest idea in literature,
He’s the highest personality in philosophy,
He’s the supreme problem in high criticism,
He’s the fundamental doctrine of true theology,
He’s the coral and necessity of spiritual religion,
He’s the miracle of the age,
He’s the superlative of everything good that you’d choose to call Him,
He’s the only one qualified to be an all “Sufficient Saviour”…
I wonder if you know Him today?
He supplies strength for the weak,
He’s available for the tempted and deprived,
He sympathizes and He saves,
He’s present and He sustains,
He guards and He guides,
He heals the sick,
He cleanses the lepers,
He forgives sinners,
He discharges debtors,
He delivers the captives,
He defends the feeble,
He blesses the young,
He serves the unfortunate,
He regards the aged,
He rewards the diligent,
He beautifies the meek…
I wonder if you know Him?
Well, my King, He is the key to knowledge,
He’s the wellspring of wisdom,
He’s the doorway of deliverance,
He’s the pathway of peace,
He’s the roadway of righteousness,
He’s the highway of holiness,
He’s the gateway of glory…
Do you know Him?
Well, His office is manifold,
His promise is sure,
His life is matchless,
His goodness is limitless,
His mercy is everlasting,
His love never changes,
His Word is enough,
His grace is sufficient,
His reign is righteous,
His yoke is easy and His burden is light…
Do you know Him?
I wish I could describe Him to you, but He is indescribable,
He is indescribable, Good God,
He is incomprehensible,
Well, you can’t get Him out of your mind…
You can’t get Him off of your hand…
You can’t outlive Him, and you can’t live without Him…
Well, the Pharisees couldn’t stand Him,
But they found out they couldn’t stop Him,
Pilate couldn’t find any fault in Him,
The witnesses couldn’t get their testimonies to agree,
Herod couldn’t kill Him,
Death couldn’t handle Him
and the grave couldn’t hold Him! YES!!
That’s my King! That’s my King!
Yes, and thine is the Kingdom, the power and the glory forever and ever and ever and ever…
How long is that?
And ever and ever…
And when you get through with all the forevers, then AMEN!
Good God Almighty!
