"That's My King!" Who Dearly Loves His Cheating Bride And Will Not Cast Her Down Aside But For Her Purity He Died!

You commit adultery if your spouse you divorce; All these actions only cause remorse; Separating and adultery God doesn't endorse; So turn from divorce and take Christ's course; His blood bought bride He'll never divorce; Love that lasts is His proven course; To love this way, Christ is the source; So trust in Him – one flesh reinforce!
Divorce was never in God's plan; Since life and love and time began; But then sin grew so bad in man; That for two reasons, divorce you can; Adultery is death to man; Abandonment – your spouse he ran; These break the covenantal plan; So look to Christ and His Word scan; For "Christ is all!" - He's better than; Your life and all the years its span; He died and rose to be the Man; So be a follower, not a fan!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

Divorce and remarriage are painfully hard; So let us church be on our guard; If you need help from a past marred; From brokenness that's left you scarred; Christ's church is here with kind regard; So come for help if you've been jarred; To save your soul the Christ was scarred; And from His Father He was barred; Rose up alive to death discard; He can heal your pains so hard; And on your life His grace bombard!
To stay married is worth the fight; Keeping covenant brings delight; So no matter what's your plight; And however dark your night; By faith in Christ receive the light; Come with humble heart contrite; Receive His endless store of might; In Him all things will be all right; In you a fire of love ignite; Christ is the marriage saving Knight; Who loved His bride though she took flight; And sinned against Him left and right; For her He died and loved despite; Her ugly, sinful, painful slight; And now He makes her pure and bright; And fills her with His pure delight!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Of Every Case, Loves Every Race, And Will Give Grace To All Who Trust And Him Embrace!

If you weren't there, be slow to speak; You may be wrong in your critique; In everything we should be meek; It's for the truth that we should seek; Turn off the news – it is a freak; Hatred and division peak; Praise God for Christ the Son unique!  Who came and turned the other cheek; And gave His life on holy week; And rose in glorious mystique; Now stands to save the low and weak; In all your pain and future bleak; Christ gives the hope all races seek!
Pray for peace is His command; So bow your knee and with Him stand; May God unite our evil land; And stop the blood shed by our hand; Oh praise the King Who has all planned!  And seek His power to withstand; The evil in our hearts He's banned; Let's trust His sovereign, mighty hand!

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

Pray for both families involved; May their hopes not be dissolved; May hope in Christ be their resolve; In Christ all justice will be solved; By faith in Him all are absolved!
The verdict caused great indignation; Both sides argue – polarization; One side claims discrimination; The other says no – this is allegation; King Jesus knows all without limitation; As Judge of all He'll grant damnation; To all who sin without reformation; So whatever your side in argumentation; Humble yourself to find salvation; For Christ the King in degradation; Was beaten and killed in condemnation; Then rose up alive in glorification; To judge the world with perfect vindication; For this He earns all adoration!
The Judge of all the world does right; For every color – black and white; Come to Him, lay down your fight; He will bring you to the light; And be your ocean of delight; Trust in Him right now, tonight! His love for you is out of sight! He'll be your joy – true and bright! No more sin – tears, pain, or night! No more questions to indict!  Just pure freedom at its height!  So come to Him humble, contrite!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who Never Leaves But To His Bride Forever Cleaves And All Who Trust Him He Receives!

We long for love that will not end; Therefore our God His Son would send; To win a bride He did descend; Yet she against Him did offend; But He still loved – her hate suspend;  Before her He would condescend; And on that cross His life would end; Then from the grave He did ascend; If you'll trust – on Him depend; He'll save you now and be your friend; He'll give you love that will not end; But forevermore extend; Forever at His side you'll spend; He gives you joy that will transcend; His love you cannot comprehend!
O love that will not let me go; Deep from His heart great mercies flow; For through His love in grace we grow; When all on Him our hopes we throw; He makes our sin as white as snow; On us great favor He'll bestow; If we're humble, meek, and low; He saves us from the hell below; All because our God we know; He'll make our face shine with a glow!
It's God Who joins – oh this is sweet!  He loves you so and won't mistreat; If a spouse you hope to meet; The wait for you is long with heat; You can be sure God will replete; Your deepest needs He'll more than meet; So bow to Him, trust at His feet; He satisfies more than the sheet; And then someday on that gold street; You'll know in Him you are complete!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

Christ is God Who wrote the law; So Moses bows to Him in awe; Hardness of heart – we fight and claw; This kills marriage – lovers withdraw; You walk away – it's the last straw; But in all this there's a great flaw; There's no submission – Christ is all!  What Jesus said will drop your jaw; No separation is His law; So bow to Him and you won't fall; From your spouse you won't withdraw!
What God has joined let no man break; The two are one our God did make; With joy our Christ in love did take; A bride to keep and not forsake; And since all marriage in His wake; Points to this truth, make no mistake; We stay together for His sake; Don't listen to the wicked snake; Embrace the marriage hard with ache; And fight to stay – may love awake; To selfish sin, die and forsake; Serve the other – don't give and take; And do this all for His name's sake; For His glory's what's at stake; But you He never will forsake!
If you've failed in this high call; There is a Savior – Christ is all!  He died to save you from your fall; And heal you from the bitter gall; So in His name for mercy call; He'll take your sins – both big and small; And cast them down – never recall; He'll give new life – make you stand tall!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who's The Saltiest Salt, Died Without Fault, Rose Up Out The Vault To Make Death Halt So Him We Forever Exalt!

Jesus is the greatest sacrifice; He paid the ultimate price; For all our wicked vice; He's salt that gives the world lasting spice; He quenched the fires – that would suffice; To end God's wrath – justice precise; He rose alive – He won't die twice; And with His love all men entice; To follow Him in sacrifice!
Sacrifice is all about value and worth; And once you believe and have new birth; There's nothing else in heaven or on earth; That can compare with Jesus' worth!
Fire can purify and make us whole; God does more than save your soul; He'll help you grow in self-control; To make you Christ-like is the goal; So in your pain let this console; His love for you is from of ole; O'er all your enemies He'll roll; His eyes run to and fro – patrol; To help all those who Him extol!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

Salt preserves and makes us last; Because the Christ saved from our past; We'll endure all hardships vast; For His love none can surpass; He will keep us – hold us fast; Make us rest down in green grass; Though facing death we're all aghast; Our Good Shepherd will outlast; All pains and hurts that we've amassed; With mercy He pursues us fast; So trust in Him Whose love is vast!
When "Christ is all!" there will be peace; For He will make your conflicts cease; Your joy in Him He will increase; And all your grudges you'll release; You'll die to self – your pride decease; He'll fix your failures piece by piece; And crush your anger – strife decrease; There'll be no need for hate police; All because He did decease; Upon that cross there was no peace; He made God's wrath against you cease; And rose from death you to release; So now the earth shall know His peace; It shall forevermore increase!

That's my King!  That's my King!
