What do ye think of Christ indeed

What do ye think of Christ indeed

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 What do ye think of Christ indeed;
Who do ye say is he?
To judge this matter take ye heed,
And search the truth and see.

2 We call him David's son 'tis true,
As written in the word--
But it must be remember'd too,
That David calls him Lord.

3 The Lord whom David freely own'd,
To be his sovereign head:
With whom his soul had ever found
Such grace as he did need.

4 Who is he then in my esteem,
My soul what dost thou feel;
Wilt thou not ask that grace from him,
To learn and do his will.

5 He is the Pearl of greater price!
And those who love him best,
Shall be with greatest hopes and joys;
For evermore possess'd.

6 What think ye then ye sons of men?
Should he not be our King;
Should we not wish with him to reign,
And e'er his praise to sing?
