"That's My King!" Who's Worthy Of All The Glory, More Valuable Than The Whole World's Gold Inventory, And Lived The Perfect, Humble, Sinless Story!

Christ above all is the most glorious; His perfect work was pure laborious; On that cross He was made notorious; He died a horrible death inglorious; But rose from the tomb alive victorious; His saving work for us meritorious; So trust the Son, and He'll make you glorious!
Deep down, He's the beauty that we seek; For He created all human physique; If the creature's beauty leaves your knees weak; Compared to our God, the creature is bleak; In all His beauty He's utterly unique; He'll leave you breathless – you cannot speak; He's infinite in power and wisdom mystique; He came as a Lamb – both humble and meek; He cried on that cross with a forsaken shriek; And died to save the lost and weak; Then rose our conquering King unique! Come and see – He's what you seek!
Come His infinite value behold; He's worth more than all the gold; That 10 million earths could hold; If all you've owned, you priced and sold; He's still worth more – precious untold; He will not let your heart stay cold; For He died as was foretold; And rose again your heart to mold; And shape it into purest gold; So come and trust your King so bold; Not one mercy He'll withhold; O'er all your life He has controlled; Your righteous story He'll unfold!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who's Worthy Of All Adoration, Ransomed People From Every Nation, And Will Accomplish Perfect Racial Reconciliation!

Jesus Christ is the interracial King!  His bride is a little bit of everything!  And from His heart all love will spring! He died all peoples together to bring! Asian, African, and those in Beijing; By faith all as one to Him we'll cling; Join your voices and to Him sing! "Worthy is the Lamb!" shall loudly ring! There's no One like Him – our glorious King; Who will forever make us sing!
Some believe racism is totally dead; It's no longer a problem some have said; If you believe that, you've been misled; For in our hearts this evil's spread; Denial won't help the past we've led; But on our enemies Christ will tread! To cleanse our hearts His blood He shed; A Lamb to the slaughter He was led; Beaten, bruised with wrath He bled; And then was raised up from the dead; Our racists thoughts He will behead; And we will love each race instead; And be a family – He's the Head; If we'll confess this sin we've fed; And trust the Son Who for us bled; To the King of race we'll wed; He'll be our Husband Who will shred; Every racist thought we've bred; He'll set us free to love widespread; From every tribe and tongue who's fled; Into His arms just as He said; And then there's only peace ahead; For He's died to kill the dread; And leave racism fully dead!

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

Jesus is worthy to open the scroll; For He was slain to save your soul; He alone has met God's goal; He's God the man Who takes control; He has no sin – He's perfect – whole; He's the only righteous soul; If you trust Him, He'll console; He alone can make you whole; And He alone can save your soul; So turn to Him – give Him control; In all of life, Him you'll extol!
He ransomed people from every nation; We have them here – Chinese and Haitian; And the only hope for reconciliation; Is for Christ the Lamb to be our fixation; As we look to His throne in holy fascination; He must be our race foundation; His blood is thicker than any relation; So look to Him – the Author of creation; He'll make us one without condemnation; He'll move us to love without hesitation; There will be no more types of segregation; Martin Luther King's dream will find consummation; As we look to the Lamb with exclamation; And cry "You are worthy!" in pure admiration; Peace evermore will be our habitation; As we reign with our King with no more temptation; But only more joy and love escalation; While we worship the Lamb with every nation!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who's The Greatest Delight, Possesses All Might, And One Day Soon He'll Make All Things Right!

The Father, Son, and Spirit delight; They're the King of kings outright; Ravishing beauty – out of sight; Enough words of praise you cannot write; More than the sun when shinning bright; They make its flames like darkest night; For They're the everlasting Light! With matchless power as their might; They'll only, always do what's right; For on that cross They won the fight! The Father, sin in flesh did smite; The Son did humbly die contrite; The Spirit raised the Son upright; And now to all They will invite; Into the arms of Christ – take flight; Believe in Him – your hearts ignite; New loves and joys He'll excite; For God will be your greatest delight!
Delight in God through humble prayer; This should be our love affair; On Him our wants and wishes bear; Upon Him we can cast our care; With Him there's none who can compare; And since He will always be there; We should never faint – despair; For in all things He'll never err; His pure goodness we'll declare; And in His joys we'll soon share!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

Mere duty is an obligation; And sometimes an irritation; Done without heart preparation; It alone is the wrong motivation; For Christian sanctification; It will lead to damnation; But we need salvation; So God makes a new creation; And fills our hearts with elation and inspiration; Because Christ is our new preoccupation; He's our Love infatuation; The centerpiece of civilization; God's final declaration; He died in condemnation; Then rose for our justification; Now He's the Treasure of the congregation; Who grants us transformation; And turns our obligation into joyful desperation; For Himself with adoration; Who's our all – the full summation; Of all good for every nation; In Him – the incarnation; Find the greatest culmination; Of your every expectation; May He be your only fascination!
At delight in the Father He truly excelled; Yet the desires of His heart were once withheld; From His Father's presence He was expelled; At the cross on Him the Father's wrath swelled; All because in our sin we had rebelled; "My God!  My God!" Forsaken He yelled; And by this love we are compelled; To delight in Him – our joy's upheld!  Of the excellent ones over all He's excelled!

That's my King!  That's my King!

He is Lord of the dead!
In Him there is nothing unclean in itself!
He did not please Himself but "The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me."
He became a Servant to the circumcised to show God's truthfulness, in other to confirm the promises given to the patriarchs, and in other that the Gentiles might glorify God for His mercy!
All that Paul accomplished was Christ in Paul accomplishing it for the glory of His name!
Jesus Christ is the Author, Subject, Theme, Outline, Introduction, Body, Conclusion, Structure, Hero, and Climax of this greatest letter ever written by the power of the Holy Spirit for the glory of God the Father!

"That's My King!" Whose Words Will Never Pass Away But Give New Life Each Passing Day For He's The Life, The Truth, The Way!

The grass withers and flowers fade; But our God's Word's forever stayed; Jesus spoke these Word's conveyed; With grace and truth to be obeyed; He is the God-Man – full displayed; And all things in this world He made; He came with us to make a trade; Our sin for goodness – His arrayed; For this exchange He was betrayed; On Him our sin was fully laid; For on that cross our debt was paid; He took God's wrath – on Him it weighed; But then He did what all dismayed; Rose from the grave – death He'd evade; And now we're free – no more afraid; For in our lives mercies pervade; For He's our everlasting shade; In all our trials He'll be our aid; Sings over us – a serenade; Our Lover-God will not be swayed; He loves us still – He's on crusade; To make us like His Son displayed; And in our hearts with joy invade; Do you know Him? - don't masquerade; For God the Son cannot be played; So trust Him now and you'll be saved; For Him to be your all we prayed!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

Everything in heaven with burn; At our mighty King's return; This should be your great concern; Please don't the Words of Jesus spurn; But to Him bow your knees and learn; From your sin He'll make you turn; For Him alone He'll make you yearn; Since your salvation He did earn!
If you want to hear God's Word; And get your heart forever stirred; Don't trust your heart or feelings blurred; Open the Book where Christ is heard; His Word from here will not be slurred; His truth to you shall be transferred; It is the method He preferred; To go elsewhere is just absurd; Take up and read, you've been referred; To this task be undeterred!
Jesus' Words are sweetest sweet; Like richest honey we would eat; They give us light and make complete; They warm our hearts with deepest heat; Reveal to us our vain conceit; And show us how to sin defeat; They're solid like diamond concrete; Yet everlasting – none delete; We long for Him – our greatest treat; So come Lord Jesus – You we'll meet; And laugh and sing on golden street; You are our all – the great elite!

That's my King!  That's my King!
