"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!
