God has secured an everlasting kingdom
And introduced another kind of kingship
By one who proved His every act was king-like
And demonstrated His expertise in kingcraft.
Jesus is King, true as no other king is
Because His blood establishes the King’s peace;
Grace is the salient principle of His kinghood
Through righteousness in which His rule is kingly.
And with Him rule the ones who are His kindred
Who know the Lord as their Redeemer-Kinsman -
Not merely His as simply fleshly kinsfolk
But made His own in an eternal kinship.
