"That's My King!" Who's The Everlasting Rest Who Past The Test So We Could Be Forever Blessed!

He created the world in the very beginning; His work was good, and He was grinning; But then man rebelled and since then we've all been sinning; So God became man and against all enemies began winning; To clean up the mess until there's perfect rest in the final inning!
He made everything from nothing; Then He rested without rushing; He's the Creator Who's so loving that we long for His second coming!
Jesus worked hard, and calls us to follow; If not, our profession of faith seems quite hollow!
His grace empowers us to work hard which He purchased through His body marred, His hands scarred, and His fellowship with the Father barred on that cross where He was treated with all disregard!
Then up from the grave He arose; With a mighty triumph o'er all His foes; He didn't in the least bit decompose, and all they found was His grave clothes; And now everywhere He goes He shows salvation to all He knows who don't oppose but find in Him everlasting repose!

That's my King!  I wonder if you know Him today?!

He commanded His disciples to rest awhile after preaching all men must repent and reconcile!
Because He's in control, we can rest and sleep; He keeps us as His precious sheep; Our redemption price wasn't cheap; It caused Him to cry, pray, wail, and weep; But because His sacrifice was eternally deep, we can be sure our lives He'll forever keep!
The first Adam failed the test and was restricted from the Sabbath rest; Sin he failed to detest, the truth He suppressed and was with himself too impressed so that he caused universal distress and unrest; But Jesus came on a dominating conquest; With His Father's will He was obsessed in order to free the oppressed so that we could be blessed by the best from the east to the west!
Israel failed to stay in the promised land; They didn't obey God's every command even though He brought them out of Egypt with a mighty hand; But Jesus, the True Israel, met God's every demand; Him the devil couldn't withstand; He died on the cross just as God planned, and up from the grave He rose to stand so that the children of Abraham would be as numerous as the stars and the sand!
He's the Everlasting Rest worthy to take the scroll; Both the Lion and the Lamb Who fulfilled God's goal; For He was slain on that cross and took control to make all peoples one on the church roll; So find rest in Jesus, and He'll make you whole; turn from your sin and trust Him to save your soul!
He's the only rest that truly gives delight; All others compared are shallow and light and after awhile they all take flight; But the joy He gives satisfies to an infinite height, and He's the only one with an everlasting bite; So be contrite and for this rest fight to enter into His everlasting bright where there's no more tears or night but only holy delight!

That's my King!  That's my King!
