The Anointed One
Blessed Man of Gods Anointing,
Worthy Sovereign, Jesus, Lord:
He, the One, by Heavens appointing,
Is the Saviour of the world.
Glorious King, Eternal Sovereign,
Stoops into Davidic Line,
Shoot from Jesses stump has blossomed,
Royal rights in Him combine.
Offspring of the virgin Mary,
Mark the Holy writings true,
God Supreme, now dwells among us,
Seen in softer Human hue.
Prophets bow, for He has spoken,
Greater Prophet than them all,
He, the Word, the Son, the Substance,
He, the Amen and the All!
Listen, close, to words so tender,
Yes, so perfect and so true,
Friend and foe, alike must render,
Honour, for the honours due.
Yet we see this King Rejected,
We behold the rabbles scorn,
And we gaze in awful wonder
At a twisted crown of thorn!
We behold the Prophet silent,
As they hang him on a tree
His own words, not nails, they bind Him,
For He said that so must be
We now view Him, in the glory,
He is High Priest there for us,
Sprinkled is the blood of Jesus,
Our acceptance is a must!
Righteousness and peace eternal,
Meet in this thrice blessed One,
Heaven, earth and realms infernal,
Will acknowledge Gods own Son.
