Jesus, the Good Shepherd Who saves us
and guides us along life’s scary maze;
He’s our Savior, our Redeemer,
He’s the Light’n these ever darkening days.
It’s Him shining brightly, our beacon ahead
He’s the way, truth, the life;
He’s the vine that sustains us,
He’s the Husband, we’re the wife.
He’s the hope of the nations,
the resurrection and the door;
He’s the God-man from heaven
He’s all that and much more.
He’s The Word become flesh
the lamb of God that still roars;
He’s the lion of Judah,
the God who heals and restores.
His own tried to stone Him
for not finishing what Joshua and David began;
they wanted a world-conquering savior
not’a suffering one and certainly not a lamb.
He didn’t meet their expectations,
though common sense told ’em how absurb
but common sense not the Pharisee’s strong suit,
they kicked the universe’s Creator and Savior to the curb.
They staged a mock trial
then nailed Him to a beam,
sin and death righteously defeated
and sinful man at last redeemed.
He’s every stories happy ending,
He orchestrated how and when each began.
He’s the Alpha and Omega,
the beginning and the end.
Every knee will bow before Him
all earthly powers genuflect;
He rides the regal white stallion,
He’s the Prefect of prefects.
The perfect representation of the Father,
One in essence, equal in every way,
yet perfectly submits to the Father
whom He always seamlessly obeys.
He’s unequaled in every detail,
completely God yet fully man;
He holds the keys to death and hades
He’s the one and only great I AM!
