"That's My King!" Who's Rich Beyond Measure But Gave Up His Treasure To Fill Us With Pleasure!

The rich young man falls on his knees; And calls Christ good – now help me please; Eternal life he wants to seize; But his heart feeds a great disease; More than the God Who hears his pleas; He loves his money more than these; This is not good – it's sinful sleaze; All his goodness he thinks he sees; Which from his youth he's done with ease; God's holiness cannot appease; Since it's not good – idol disease; So trust the King o'er all decrees; The wrath of God He did appease; And rose again – He holds the keys; To life forever, and He frees; From all our idol loving sleaze; And heals our deepest heart disease; For He Himself's the prize we seize; He's our treasure beyond degrees; So come to Him Who all foresees; Your heart's great thirsts He will appease!
Be sure of this – our God is good; This rich young man misunderstood; And though he's not come from the hood; He'd failed to do the good he should; His god was gold – with wealth he stood; So sin alone is all he could; Jesus loved and understood; Therefore He died upon that wood; And rose alive – on death He stood; He gives new life so that you could; Turn from your sin – live as you should; By faith in Christ God makes you good; So treasure Him – the greatest good!

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

We all are sinners – this is true; Even us out in the pew; Our hearts sweet idols do accrue; Until His sweetest love breaks through; We turn to Christ with hearts anew; And stick to Him like dust to glue; So bid your greatest loves adieu; And take Him for your greatest view; For on that cross He died for you; Richest Young Ruler out they threw; But three days passed – He rose on cue; And all our enemies He slew; The greatest Lover – He will woo; And be to you forever true; He's better than you ever knew; Now your whole life He'll renew!
Since Christ so loved, the truth He must; Tell this man and not adjust; Point out to him his money lust; All idol loves with care He'll bust; And call on Him the Christ to trust; He died to make poor sinners just; And lives to evermore combust; Our hearts with growing love robust; For the very God we trust; So let's not put our hopes in rust; But stay humble at the cross dust; May Christ alone be our true lust; May all our hopes on Him be thrust; He's our only need and must!

That's my King!  That's my King!
