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

by J.G. Deck
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
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
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
