"That's My King!" Who Cuts Bureaucracy, Humbles Aristocracy, Shatters Hypocrisy, And Rules By Autocracy!

He despises man's ungodly tradition; To God's Word they seek to make an addition; But this is wholly contrary to Christ's mission and will fuel His holy temper ignition; He has a relentless holy ambition to save the self-righteous human condition and bring godless sinners to His full submission; So don't put your hopes in any politician, physician, superstition, or lofty recognition, but trust in Jesus' death and sin remission; By faith alone receive a righteous position, and acquire a growing holy disposition that declares against all sin outright opposition because the beauty of Christ has no competition!
His disciples ate with defiled hands, but it's the heart the eye of the LORD scans to see if in it righteousness stands and holiness continues and expands just as the LORD promises and demands; God supplies grace to obey what He commands, and He'll make His sons many like the ocean sands!
Jesus came to set free – to cut down the complex; His burden is easy and shouldn't perplex; Jewish rules were more and less than God expects; Killing heart-worship was one of their effects; But if you see the glory Christ reflects and the beauty His Person and work projects; You'll beg to be His royal subjects, delighting in Him as the best of objects!
Worship that's vain is completely insane; It's like the unacceptable sacrifice of Cain that's only profane; So break this evil chain, and turn to the Lamb Who was slain but now lives with full reign as the only One Who can end your pain; Worship Him from a pure heart to pleasure regain!
Hypocrisy He came to kill; True humility to instill with unprecedented skill; He did His Father's perfect will; He died upon mount Calvary's hill, and rose up from the dead with zeal; The law and the prophets to fulfill, and open history's every seal; He Himself became our meal; And to His name all people's kneel; Through His blood all nations heal; And He gives an everlasting thrill!

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

The Pharisees' hands had to be washed clean; Though their hearts were dirtier than a latrine; Outwardly they shine, clear, bright, and pristine, but inside they're dead and rotten gangrene; It's uglier than anything you've ever seen; Unless, of course, the Clean of cleans you've seen; Who makes even the dirtiest latrine clean, bright, and pristine; Brings to life gangrene and clears it from the scene; For sinners He'd intervene; He's the mediator and God's go-between in order to turn the ugliest into the most beautiful clean!
If your worship is fake; It's for your own sake; God's glory you take; Vile idols you make; You'll burn in the lake; Unless Christ makes you awake; Your sin forsake; Selfishness He'll break and save you from heart ache; In His glory you'll partake, and your life He'll remake; worship won't be fake, but done for His own name's sake!
God doesn't want honor merely from your lips; It's your whole life and heart He takes and grips; His delights flow down like the honeycomb drips; So come to Christ by faith and with joy He equips; From His river of pleasures you'll forever take sips where His glory will never suffer slips, trips, or eclipse!
God's holy commandments you shouldn't leave; But run to the glorious Christ and cleave; He saves if you'll only repent and believe; He died and rose, salvation to achieve; Dead, hell-bound sinners He came to retrieve; By His grace may you have new eyes to perceive; He lives for you now, your fears to relieve; He's the most precious gift you could ever receive; He's greater than all your mind could conceive!
He rules the world with almighty power; He's our refuge and strength, our strong high tower; All of our enemies He'll finally devour, though His tenderness and beauty bloom like a flower; May we be ready now, He returns any hour; Upon us great blessings He'll eternally shower!

That's my King!  That's my King!
