"That's My King!" Who Gave Up All He Had When He Died For Sinners Bad And Quenched His Father's Wrath To Add A Righteousness That Makes Us Glad To End All Sin And Pain That's Sad And Everlasting Pleasures Add!

Though the rich gave money in large sums; With all she has the widow comes; Her life may be among the slums; Where greatest feasts are only crumbs; But she gave more than all large sums; Our Lord takes note – in faith she comes!
It's not what we give, but what we keep; And what we sow is what we'll reap; For our great God is not so cheap; He gave His Son – His love is deep; And for lost sinners He did weep; He came to save all His lost sheep; And for them work – He'll never sleep; He gave His all, nothing He'd keep; And now eternal life we reap!
It's more blessed to give than to receive; Oh Father! Help us to believe; Great pleasures come when all we leave; Things of this world our hearts deceive; But "Christ is all!" to Him we cleave; He's greater than we can conceive; He died and rose to life achieve; And now in Him we do receive; More than all we'd ever leave; If you'll trust – in Him believe!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

Our God loves those who give with cheer; Those who trust and do not fear; Who sacrifice and give what's dear; So may we give and Him revere; Who gave up all that is most dear; And took our punishment severe; Took thorny crown with spit and jeer; And had His side pierced with a spear; Yelled with a cry:  "It's finished!" here; But then He rose and did appear; He conquered death and hell and fear; Now we, each Lord's Day, for Him cheer; Since He's our God Who's without peer; Who only always gave with cheer; And ever trusted without fear; Oh come to Him with faith sincere; He'll take your sins – they'll disappear; His love for you will persevere; Each day His mercy's new frontier!
In the world, there's so much need; Children starving we could feed; Unreached people's that exceed; We must take them Gospel seed; And give them beauty – Christ our creed!  So it's settled – we've agreed; Now we go forth and must proceed; To give our lives to meet the need; May we be zealous for the deed; Since Jesus died for all our greed; To set us free our Christ did bleed; And now we only can succeed; For Christ will move us on with speed; His Church will triumph – guaranteed!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who Received The Greater Condemnation For Prideful Lusts Of All Creation That He Might Save From Every Nation A Humble Bride Who Knows Salvation!

True love will say “Beware!” and warn; So from the Christ you won't be torn; To make you His our God has sworn; And gave His Son to take your scorn; On you great love He will adorn; So you will never be forlorn; Rejoice now, no longer mourn; You have new life – you've been reborn!
Jesus passionately loves His holy bride; Therefore His anger He can't hide; When evil teachers come with pride; And with their lives about God lied; Blind leaders toward destruction guide; And try to turn away His bride; From His true, pure, and perfect side; They He will with strong judgments chide; And finally cast them all outside; Where hotter fires will not subside; But with the fires of judgment wide; Our Warrior-King came to collide; He quenched the fires right where He died; And turned God's fiery wrath aside; He conquered death and "Freedom!" cried; For all who'd turn and hate their pride; And trust the Son Who for them died; With Him they will in peace abide; He stands with loving arms out wide; To take you in and be your guide; In Him all things you can confide; All joys you need He will provide; He is your joy and love supplied; So come to Him – you must decide!

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

May God make us true and humble and meek; Not like the scribe – a prideful freak; Let's humbly ask for clear critique; And try to turn the other cheek; Let all fake motives to us reek; And honesty be our pure technique; For Christ's the treasure that we seek;  May "Christ is all!" be what we speak; And also what we live each week; For though we are so poor and weak; Our Christ is strong – He's all unique!
Jesus had no robe to wear; They stripped Him down and pulled His hair; No lofty greetings He found there; They cursed and mocked Him with a glare; He had no seat – no stool or chair; Skin from His back the lash would tear; He loves you widows – don't despair! For Mary's life He did prepare; To John He'd say:  "She's in your care." Devoured by God's wrath He'd bear; He would not pray to get a stare; "Why has God left!" was His meek prayer; To greatest condemnation He would square; With no one else He'll never share; That means you're free – He will declare:  "No condemnation will ensnare!" For you, His Son, He did not spare; With Him there's none Who can compare!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who Is Our God And LORD, His Teachings Cannot Be Ignored, The Great Crowds Heard Him And Adored, Believe In Him – There's Great Reward!

Jesus taught and would exclaim:  "How is the Christ the son you claim?!" He's David's Son – prophets proclaim; He's also more – He's God Who came; And conquered every Scribe word game; He healed the sick and blind and lame; Then died and bloody wore our blame; But rose alive to crush our shame; And we shall never be the same; May our God set our hearts aflame; For the glory of His name; Christ is the Lion you can't tame! Our lives are short – they're not a game; To live for Him's our greatest aim; His praise eternal we'll proclaim!
Is this Christ your all in all?  He became this all for Saul!  Who wrote the Words that "Christ is all!"  And from all nations He will call; To save great sinners big and small; And make then down before Him fall; To worship Him as LORD of all!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

In the Spirit David wrote God's Word; If from God you wish you heard; Take up the book and read – be stirred; If an audible you've preferred; Read out loud – He won't be slurred; For our great LORD is never blurred; All His righteousness transferred; If, by faith, you'll trust His Word; Blessings unknown shall be conferred; To turn from Him would be absurd; So trust the Son Whom we've referred; He is the King Who loves the Word!
He shut the mouths of all His foes; Over whom He'd cry His woes; On to that cross our LORD He goes; All mighty powers to depose; And every secret heart expose; He'd die to save all those He chose; And from the grave He has arose; He every evil overthrows; In us His power only grows; He's our righteous, holy clothes; Take Him as yours and don't oppose; But trust Him gladly for repose; And rest in Him Who all things knows!

That's my King!  That's my King!
