'That's My King'
'That's My King' The Bible says He’s the King of the Jews He’s the King of Israel 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 is the Lord of Lords
Now that’s my King! David says The Heavens declare the glory of God And the firmament showeth His handiwork No means of measure can define His limitless love No far seeing telescope can bring into visibility the coastline of His shoreless supply No barriers can hinder Him from pouring out His blessing
He’s enduringly strong He’s entirely sincere He’s eternally steadfast He’s immortally graceful He’s imperially powerful He’s impartially merciful
That’s my King! He’s God’s Son He’s the sinners’ Saviour He’s the centrepiece of civilisation He stands alone in Himself He’s august He’s unique He’s unparalleled He’s unprecedented He’s supreme He’s pre-eminent He’s the loftiest idea in literature He’s the highest personality in philosophy He’s the supreme problem in higher criticism He’s the fundamental doctrine in true theology He’s the cardinal necessity of spiritual religion
That’s my King! He’s the miracle of the age He’s the superlative of everything good that you choose to call Him He’s the only one able to supply all of our needs simultaneously He supplies strength for the weak He’s available for the tempted and the tried He sympathises and He saves He guards and He guides He heals the sick He cleansed 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 And He beautifies the meek
Do you know Him? My King is the key of 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 He’s the master of the mighty He’s the captain of the conquerors He’s the head of the heroes He’s the leader of the legislators He’s the overseer of the overcomers He’s the governor of governors He’s the prince of princes He’s the King of Kings And He’s the Lord of Lords
That’s my King That’s my King! My King 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 I wish I could describe Him to you He’s indescribable He’s indescribable He’s incomprehensible He’s invincible He’s irresistible I’m trying to tell you The heaven of heavens cannot contain Him Let alone a man explain Him You can’t get Him out of your mind You can’t get Him off of your hands You can’t outlive Him And you can’t live without Him 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 And Herod couldn’t kill Him Death couldn’t handle Him And the grave couldn’t hold Him
That’s my King! He always has been And He always will be I’m talking about He had no predecessor and He’ll have no successor There was nobody before Him and there’ll be nobody after Him You can’t impeach Him and He’s not going to resign
That’s my King! Praise the Lord That’s my King Thine is the Kingdom And the power And the glory The glory is all His Thine is the Kingdom And the power And the glory For ever And ever And ever And when you get through with all of the forevers Then Amen
