The Authority of Christ

Jesus, the ruler of all nature.
The long-awaited Savior,
The King of kings forever.
Jesus, the wonder of the shepherds,
The healer of the lepers,
The calmer of the waters.

All praise and honor He has claimed – All pow’r and glory.
All hell is trembling at the name of Jesus!

Sing with the angels, come and
Shout with old Simeon and
Cry with the women that His mercy freed, O
Follow the fishermen and
Bow with the sinners, because
We are in awe of the authority of Christ.

Jesus, Who spoke in puzzling parables,
Who left the haughty humbled,
Who challenged and who troubled.
Jesus, Who freely gave forgiveness,
Confounding all who witnessed
That he could show such boldness.

All praise and honor He has claimed – All pow’r and glory.
All hell is trembling at the name of Jesus!

Sing with the angels, come and
Shout with old Simeon and
Cry with the women that His mercy freed, O
Follow the fishermen and
Bow with the sinners, because
We are in awe of the authority of Christ.

Jesus, Who let the mob be furious,
Submitting to their blood lust,
Rose to life victorious!

All praise and honor He has claimed – All pow’r and glory.
All hell is trembling at the name of Jesus!

Sing with the angels, come and
Shout with old Simeon and
Cry with the women that His mercy freed, O
Follow the fishermen and
Bow with the sinners, because
We are in awe of the authority of Christ.
