My King

August 18, 2005

My King was born King; the Bible says He’s the seven-way King.
He’s the King of the Jews- that is a racial King.
He’s the King of Israel – that’s a national king.
He’s the King of righteousness,
He’s the King of the ages,
He’s the King of heaven,
He’s the King of glory,
He’s the King of kings and
He is the Lord of lords.
Now, that’s my King.

“Well, I wonder if you know Him do you know Him?
Don’t try to mislead me – do you know my King?
David said, “The heavens declare the glory of God
and the firmament shows His handiwork.”
My King is the only one, whom there is no means of measure can define His limitless love.
No far-seeing telescope can bring into visibility the coastline of His shoreless supplies.
No barriers can hinder Him from pouring out His blessing.
He’s enduringly strong, He’s entirely sincere, He’s eternally steadfast, He’s immortally graceful, imperially powerful, He’s impartially merciful.

That’s my King. He’s God’s Son, He’s the sinner’s Saviour. He’s the centrepiece of civilisation, He stands alone in Himself. He’s awesome, unique, unparalleled –
He’s unprecedented.

He’s the miracle of the age. He’s the superlative of everything good that you choose to call Him. He is the only one able to supply all of our needs simultaneously. He supplies strength for the weak. He’s available for the tempted and the tried. He sympathises and He saves.
He foreguards and He guides.
He heals the sick.
He cleanses the lepers.
He forgives sinners.
He discharges debtors.
He delivers the captives. He defends the feeble. He blesses the young. He serves the unfortunate. He regards the aged.
He rewards the diligent, and He beautifies the meek. Do you know Him?

Well, my King is the King of knowledge.
He’s the wellspring of wisdom, He’s the doorway of deliverance.
He’s the pathway of peace, He’s the roadway of righteousness, He’s the highway of holiness, He’s the gateway of glory.
He’s the Master of the mighty, He’s the Captain of the conquerors, He’s the Head of the heroes and He’s the Leader of the legislators!
He’s the Overseer of the overcomers, He’s the Governor of the governors.
He’s the Prince of princes, He’s the King of kings, and He’s the Lord of lords.
That’s my King.

His office is manifold and His promise is sure. His light is matchless,
His goodness is limitless.
His mercy is everlasting and His love never changes.
His Word is enough, His grace is sufficient.
His reign is righteous, His yoke is easy and His burden is light.
Well, I wish I could describe Him to you, but He’s indescribable!
He’s incomprehensible, invincible, irresistible.

I’m trying to tell you the heaven of heavens cannot contain Him,
let alone a man explain Him!
You can’t get Him out of your mind. You can’t get Him off of your hands.
You can’t outlive Him and you can’t live without Him!
Well, Pharisees couldn’t stand Him but they found out they couldn’t stop Him.
Pilot couldn’t find any fault in Him.
The witnesses couldn’t get their testimonies to agree and Herod couldn’t kill Him.
Death couldn’t handle Him and the grave couldn’t hold Him.
That’s my King!

He always has been and He always will be.
I’m talking about, He had no predecessor and He’ll have no successor.
There was nobody before Him and there will be no one after Him.
You can’t impeach Him and He’s not going to resign.
That’s my King!

Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory.
Well, all the power belongs to my King.
We around here talk about black-power, and white-power, and green-power, but it’s God’s power! Thine is the power and the glory!
We are trying to get prestige and honour and glory for ourselves but the glory is all His.
Yes, Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory for ever and ever and ever
and ever (how long is that?) and ever
and ever and ever and ever.
And when you get through with all of the forevers, then – “Amen!”

– As inspired by Pastor Dr. Shadrach Meshach Lockridge.
