"That's My King!" Who's The Healer Of All, Reversed The Fall, And Conquers Every Sickness Big Or Small!

The people recognized Him when He got to the shore; He's the miracle worker they'd come to adore; For signs and wonders they'd beg for more; But His identity as God they seemed to ignore; Yet to be reconciled to God He's the only Door; At that cross His precious life-blood He'd pour; On His bloodied back your sins He bore, and then rose from the dead to win the war; All beauty and good to perfectly restore; And grant us fullness of joy and pleasures forevermore!
Jesus is the the center of attention; He's amazing and extraordinary in every dimension; Though He's eternal God, He made a lowly condescension to save sinners from Hell and every contention; His beauty and love are without comprehension, and after He made His glorious ascension, He calls us to go and His Gospel to mention; In all of our lives it demands utter submission and to every nation further extension for the fame of His name in every dimension!
Jesus is available to all who see their need; He's quick to accomplish every good deed; For every repentant sinner He came to bleed; And in them plant His everlasting seed so that they would believe His creed and follow His lead to be fully freed!
Jesus came showing mercy and love; He's gentle and tender, just like a dove; He's the God Who is love that's come down from above!
When Adam fell into sin the whole world was lost; But at great personal cost Jesus came to reverse the loss and do even more at the cross!

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

There's nothing on earth that Jesus can't heal; No matter what's wrong or how bad you feel, if to Him by faith you make your appeal, He'll always work His perfect will, and give you what's best – that's the ideal; So don't go to Him to make a deal, but pour out your heart and before Him be real, and His perfect plan for your life He'll reveal!
Because of sin we get sick and die, but when it comes to specifics we don't know why; Sometimes if you lie, you may get pinkeye; but others like Job don't sin or defy, yet sickness they get no matter how hard they try; So for righteousness aim high; On your own understanding don't rely; Trust in our God's endless supply of love that never runs dry and into His fatherly arms always fly; For His mercy never cease to cry, and He'll make all things beautiful in the great by and by!
We long for a day of no more sickness, death, and pain; When the curse will be gone and nothing will be vain; To win this new day Jesus came to be slain; He had to suffer and die and be counted profane; Then rise from the grave, paradise to regain; He started everything we'll finally attain, but there's more to come so don't complain; The "already – not yet" theologians try to explain; When Jesus comes back there'll be a whole new domain where a new earth and new bodies this world will contain; Then all sin and death will have no more reign, again the world will be sane, over all the earth God's glory will forever remain because Jesus Christ is worthy to obtain!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who's The I AM HE Who Passed By On The Sea, Makes Fears Flee, And Sets Hearts Free!

He's the sea walker, fear blocker, wind rocker, and disciple shocker!
He went up on the mountain to pray; His Father always showed Him the way so He wouldn't go astray but be faithful in all He'd do and say; His disciples He'd soon dismay as He put on display His beauty and power in  glorious array which reached its climax when on that cross they'd slay, but He'd forever take away all fear and every kind of decay, and all His children with good repay, for He rose up from the grave on the third day!
The wind pushed the disciples back; The sea and sky were black, and they seemed to be off track; strength to move forward they'd lack, but then they saw something that 'bout made them crack – God on the sea right now we'll unpack!
Job said it's God Who treads upon the wave, but that's how we see Jesus behave; Now He Himself is all the rave, for God so loved the world He gave that He might save sinners who misbehave, make them His slave, and grant them Him alone to crave!
They saw Him walking on the sea, showing His identity is key; He is the I AM HE Who alone can set you free from needing any he or she because He Himself your all must be!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

After He satisfied them all with bread and sent the disciples on ahead, upon the waters Jesus tread and filled the disciples all with dread; But then He turned His head and with conviction said “I AM!” And that's what God to Moses said!  So let all your dread be dead and never spread but put your trust in Him instead, for you know He bled and rose from the dead to be the Church's perfect Head!
Many question His passing by; They wonder and ask why; But if you have an Old Testament eye; "This is amazing!" you might reply, for it shows us Jesus is God Most High, since it's God Himself Who passes by and God in the flesh has now drawn nigh, so at these truths don't sigh, but drink deeply from His infinite supply and to Him for mercy cry!
The great I AM gets in the boat; By His Word the world's afloat; To show His identity Mark wrote; He doesn't need your support or vote; To Him alone all allegiance we must devote!
If you trust Him then don't be afraid; He'll be your unshakable aid and life giving shade; Your heart He'll invade just as you prayed; You won't be swayed even at the threat of a blade because to you unspeakable love He's displayed; With His life He paid on that cross we've surveyed in the tomb He was laid, but death He'd evade and with glory is forever arrayed!
So don't harden your heart; You don't have to be smart; Just believe in your heart, and He'll set you apart; No matter what you've done, you'll get a fresh start, and He'll recreate your life like precious fine art!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who's The Prophet, Good Shepherd, And Provider Whose Strong Arms Of Mercy Can't Be Opened Wider!

He had compassion on the crowed, though they were proud and without a leader poorly endowed; He taught them truth out loud while they sat under the cloud until their stomachs growled and with His power to provide He wowed the crowed and gave them more food than their appetites allowed; He's God come down and they should have bowed and to Him alone all allegiance avowed!
People came to Him from every place, though He had no desirable face; He and His disciples couldn't hide from the chase or slow down their pace, and they had no personal space, but He kept showing love and grace that would eventually spread to every race!
He's the Prophet like Moses Who was to come, though they didn't know where He came from;  He was spit upon, killed, and treated like scum, but He rose from the grave, lifting up from the slum; Of all beauty and good He's the infinite sum!  
He's the Good Shepherd Who had to die; "Is there another way?!" was His holy cry; Forsaken on the cross He asked His Father why; He obeyed the Divine will and did comply, without a sigh He glorified the Most High and kept His eye fixed on the joy to come by and by to win for us mercy of endless supply if on Him alone we'll only rely so what's your reply; To His arms may you forever fly!

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

He's the Bread of Life Who died for His wife in order to finally end all strife!
He's the Bread that was broken; an incomparable token; God's final Word spoken; From the dead He's awoken to save His chosen, restore their emotion, and win their devotion as He makes a way open to enjoy His bottomless love-mercy ocean!
He's the Bread Who came down to wipe away the Father's frown; He won the crown for His Father's renown, He's the most precious noun of any town around; In His glory and beauty we can drown; When sin increases His grace will abound; He's the Master of the lost and found; He's like the heavenly hound; He'll chase you down; He died but rose up from the ground so His mercy would surround, His enemies confound, and His people forever astound with His glory unspeakably profound!
All your needs He will provide since He died to make you His bride; He'll kill your pride and be your guide; He's forever and always on your side; So put all sin aside and in Him abide, even though your tempted and tried His arms are open wide; So run to Him and in His mercy hide and spread His Gospel worldwide so you can praise His name in heaven with all nations side by side!
He satisfies the desire of every living thing; Of all pleasure and joy He's the everlasting spring; He can't help but make you sing because of all the delight He'll bring; So turn from every other empty fling and flee to Him and cling because He's the only all satisfying King!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who's The Everlasting Rest Who Past The Test So We Could Be Forever Blessed!

He created the world in the very beginning; His work was good, and He was grinning; But then man rebelled and since then we've all been sinning; So God became man and against all enemies began winning; To clean up the mess until there's perfect rest in the final inning!
He made everything from nothing; Then He rested without rushing; He's the Creator Who's so loving that we long for His second coming!
Jesus worked hard, and calls us to follow; If not, our profession of faith seems quite hollow!
His grace empowers us to work hard which He purchased through His body marred, His hands scarred, and His fellowship with the Father barred on that cross where He was treated with all disregard!
Then up from the grave He arose; With a mighty triumph o'er all His foes; He didn't in the least bit decompose, and all they found was His grave clothes; And now everywhere He goes He shows salvation to all He knows who don't oppose but find in Him everlasting repose!

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

He commanded His disciples to rest awhile after preaching all men must repent and reconcile!
Because He's in control, we can rest and sleep; He keeps us as His precious sheep; Our redemption price wasn't cheap; It caused Him to cry, pray, wail, and weep; But because His sacrifice was eternally deep, we can be sure our lives He'll forever keep!
The first Adam failed the test and was restricted from the Sabbath rest; Sin he failed to detest, the truth He suppressed and was with himself too impressed so that he caused universal distress and unrest; But Jesus came on a dominating conquest; With His Father's will He was obsessed in order to free the oppressed so that we could be blessed by the best from the east to the west!
Israel failed to stay in the promised land; They didn't obey God's every command even though He brought them out of Egypt with a mighty hand; But Jesus, the True Israel, met God's every demand; Him the devil couldn't withstand; He died on the cross just as God planned, and up from the grave He rose to stand so that the children of Abraham would be as numerous as the stars and the sand!
He's the Everlasting Rest worthy to take the scroll; Both the Lion and the Lamb Who fulfilled God's goal; For He was slain on that cross and took control to make all peoples one on the church roll; So find rest in Jesus, and He'll make you whole; turn from your sin and trust Him to save your soul!
He's the only rest that truly gives delight; All others compared are shallow and light and after awhile they all take flight; But the joy He gives satisfies to an infinite height, and He's the only one with an everlasting bite; So be contrite and for this rest fight to enter into His everlasting bright where there's no more tears or night but only holy delight!

That's my King!  That's my King!
