JESUS CHRIST

Peace is preached by Jesus Christ
(He is Lord of all things)
For His sacrifice sufficed
For both great and small things;
Jesus Christ remains the Same,
Then, and now, and always;
We have blessing in His Name
In both great and small ways.

Jesus Christ the Righteous One
Is propitiation;
Jesus Christ God's only Son
Brought our souls salvation;
Jesus Christ the crucified
Saved us by His dying:
Once for all our Saviour died,
For our sanctifying.

In this world where sin and pain
Makes things seem disjointed,
Jesus Christ will come to reign
As the Man Anointed:
Good and vile with one accord
Will pronounce the story:
Jesus Christ alone is Lord
To the Father's glory.

WE ARE ALL THAT HE HAS IN THE WORLD

We are those whom His blood has secured;
We are those for whose sake He endured,
Whom the Father and Spirit allured;
   We are all that He has in the world.

We are those He has reached by His grace,
And secured for a heavenly place;
Till the time when we gaze on His face
    We are all that He has in the world.

He has called us His brethren and friends;
By His spirit His blessing descends;
As the church who His glory defends
    We are all that He has in the world.

AN UNSUSPECTING STATE

Our God, Thy grace is great,
And great Thy will to bless
And a mature believer knows
'An unsuspecting state
of conscious happiness
with Him from whom all blessing flows'.

The quote is from J N Darby volume 12 page 341.

WE ARE ALL HE HAS IN THE WORLD

He has no throne
Here; no crown;
No sceptre: we are all
He has in the world.

So - what nourishing!
What cherishing: His daily bounty,
Since we are all
He has in the world.

He has no select
Nation; because His own
Received Him not; we
Are all He has in the world.

By why these pains, these
Chastenings?  He sits, a refiner
And purifier of silver; for
We are all He has in the world.

He will have His throne, His
Chosen people: but seeing His bride
Will remember always she once
Was all He has in the world.

THE JUDGE OF ISRAEL

Micah 5 v 1

"They shall smite the Judge of Israel
With a rod upon the cheek",
Though His deeds were always righteous,
And His ways were always meek.

"They shall smite the Judge of Israel
With a rod upon the cheek",
Though they were the needy people
Whom His love had come to seek.

"They shall smite the Judge of Israel
With a rod upon the cheek",
Though His blessing was unbounded
And His patience was unique.

"They shall smite the Judge of Israel
With a rod upon the cheek",
Since they formed, against Messiah,
A nefarious, lawless clique.

"They shall smite the Judge of Israel
With a rod upon the cheek",
In contemptuous rejection
Of the words He had to speak.

"They shall smite the Judge of Israel
With a rod upon the cheek",
Since there was no sin within Him
And no lust for sin to pique.

"They shall smite the Judge of Israel
With a rod upon the cheek",
Who will come in power and glory
To avenge the poor and weak.

GREAT PRIEST

The house of God has over it
Thyself who art Great Priest
And we approach as those made fit
To celebrate God’s feast;
We love to see Thee where Thou art
And find what gratifies God’s heart.

PRIEST


O Priest for ever by God’s oath
Thou soon shalt take Thy throne,
Counsel of peace between Thee both,
Whilst Thou shalt serve Thine own;
What glory shall be borne by Thee
As Priest and Prince at God’s decree.
