"That's My King!" Who Put To The Test, Brought Out Her Best, Healed The Possessed, And Made The Outcast His Guest – God's Glory To Forever Express!

Jesus entered a house and wanted to stay hidden; Even from all the bedridden and those with devils stricken; This evil's in the world because Adam ate the forbidden, and because of this sin the whole world he'd sicken; But the Second Adam came on that cross to be smitten and rise from the dead just as it was written so the vilest of sinners could still be forgiven; To this woman He'd finally listen; Her faith won't let His mercy stay hidden and her humility His stern reply has overridden!
Like Job, Jesus put this woman warrior to the test; He didn't do this to make her life stressed or depressed; But in love to make her faith shine as He pressed; Jesus brought out her best while on a loving, mercy-heart quest; And by faith in His righteousness alone she'd be dressed; He graciously granted her humble request and healed her daughter from all that oppressed; If like this woman you want to be blessed; Humble yourself and don't stick out your chest; Trust  Him alone and with all that He is be impressed; He'll always grant you what's best and give you everlasting rest!
Pleading with Jesus she wouldn't relent; Her desires persisted for His consent; With His blessing alone she'd be content; Her faith wouldn't submit but bowed to the humblest extent; Her place as a dog she wouldn't resent; But answered "Yes Lord!" without dissent; She would trust Him no matter what He meant, for she believed His only good, loving intent, and her great faith would cause His heart to assent, and put an end to her horrific torment!
She didn't mind being little; Her ego's not that brittle; Her joy it didn't whittle; She followed her Savior's transmittal when His face was marred with spittle before He died for her acquittal and showed His life was all committal!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

Jesus can't be hidden from plain sight; He's the not little One of Whom Mark would write; He's God come to earth to make all wrongs right; Yet He became little as a man contrite, and died on that cross as the sin God would smite; Now risen He reigns as the Master of might!
What makes all the difference is the object of your trust; Your faith can be weak, but if on Jesus your hopes are thrust, you'll never walk away in disgust, but Christ will be your holy lust; In this short life He's your only MUST; Hidden with Him all your dreams are robust; They'll never turn to dust or be tarnished by rust, so put your faith in Him Who's never unjust!
He welcomes the outcasts from every nation; All peoples and races both southern and Haitian; He'll make you His guest without reservation; From all tribes and tongues He grants salvation; To join His family there's one stipulation; Repent and believe, and He'll start reformation; You'll find in Him everlasting liberation, meditation, fascination, and jubilation – can I get an amen affirmation?!
One of Christ's crumbs is better than all you could dream; It's better than the whole world and how great that might seem; He's better than her in all her beauty gleam and love steam; You see, Christ Himself is the Bread of Life Supreme; "Christ is all!" is what you most desperately need and not self-esteem, for we already esteem ourselves to the extreme; Jesus came to save us from our self-centered scheme; He died on that cross our lives to redeem and rose from the dead setting up His regime; Repent and believe to live the dream; You'll forget yourself and have Christ-esteem and enjoy Him with satisfaction you've never seen as God's glory more and more becomes your only theme!

That's my King!  That's my King!
