219. Lord, What Is Man? 'Tis He Who Died

6-8s.

Lord, what is man? 'Tis He who died
 
And all Thy nature glorified;
 
Thy righteousness and grace displayed
 
When He for sin atonement made;
 
Obedient unto death, was slain—
 
Worthy is He o'er all to reign.
Psalm 8:4; 1 Corinthians 15:3; John 17:1,5; Romans 5:11; Philippians 2:8; Revelation 5:12
2
Thy counsels ere the world began,
 
All centered in the Son of Man;
 
Him destined to the highest place,
 
Head of His church through sovereign grace;
 
To Him enthroned in majesty,
 
Let every creature bend the knee.
1 Peter 1:20; Hebrews 7:26; Colossians 1:18; Philippians 2:10
3
Worthy, O Son of Man, art Thou
 
Of every crown that decks Thy brow;
 
Worthy art Thou to be adored,
 
And owned as universal Lord;
 
Oh, hasten that long-promised day,
 
When all shall own Thy rightful sway!
Revelation 19:12; Revelation 4:11; Revelation 19:6; Revelation 22:20; Ezekiel 21:27
