Representative Text

1 Jesus is Lord! Behold, the King of kings,
exalted high, the name above all names.
I sing his praise, the Lamb upon the throne,
who reigns in glory, power, and majesty.

2 This is my God. Behold his hands and side,
the wounds of love that healed my brokenness.
What God is this? What kind of sacrifice
would give so much to gain a loveless soul?

3 For me, to live is Christ, to die is gain,
for Christ has died that I might gain his life.
He is my all, my joy, my righteousness,
my hope of glory when he comes to reign.

4 Yes, suddenly, my God shall come again.
And every knee shall bow before his name.
And he shall reign forever on the throne.
And in his glory there I shall proclaim:

"Jesus is Lord! Jesus is Lord!
Jesus is Lord! Jesus is Lord!"
