That’s My King

There is a Christian piece of material called “That’s My king.” It is an old piece and you may have seen it, heard it or even read it, but it always seems appropriate this time of year.

It is called “That’s My King” by S.M. Lockridge. HERE is a video version and it is worth a listen. There are numerous videos out there with Dr. Lockridge’s voice and different pictures.

I once typed in a version of this piece, but after listening to it I realized my version had a few minor differences. I am guessing that Mr. Lockridge used the same material several times in several locations with minor variances.
So here is the version I possess in writing:

THAT’S MY KING By Shadrach Meshach Lockridge

My King is a seven way king
He’s the King of the Jews. That’s a racial King
He’s the King of Israel. That’s a national King
He’s the King of righteousness
He’s the King of the ages
He’s the King of Heaven
He’s the King of glory
He’s the King of Kings and He’s the Lord of Lords

That’s my King

My King is a sovereign King.
No means of measure can divide his limitless love.
No far-reaching telescope can bring into visibility the coastline of his shoreless supply.
No barrier can hinder him from pouring out his blessings

Why He’s enduringly strong
He’s entirely sincere
He’s eternally steadfast
He’s immortality graceful
He’s empirically powerful
He’s impartially merciful

Oh !!! Do you know him? Do you know him?

He’s the greatest phenomenon that has ever cross the horizons of the world
He’s God’s Son
He’s the sinner’s savior
He’s the centerpiece of civilization
He stands in the solitude of himself
He’s August and He’s unique
He’s unparalleled
He’s unprecedented
He’s the loftiest ideal in literature
He’s the highest personality in philosophy
He’s the supreme problem in high criticism
He’s the fundamental doctrine of true theology
He’s the necessity of spiritual religion
He’s the miracle of the ages
He’s the superlative of everything good that you choose call him
He’s the only one qualified to be in all sufficiency

Oh !!! I wonder do you know him? Do you know him?

He’s the key of knowledge
He’s the wellspring of wisdom
He’s the doorway of deliverance
He’s the pathway of peace
He’s the roadway of righteousness
He’s the highway of holiness
He’s the gateway of glory
He’s the master of the mighty
He’s the captain of the conquerors
He’s the head the heros
He’s the leader of the legislatures
He’s the over comer of the over comers
He’s the governor of the governors
He’s the prince of princes
He’s the Lord of Lords

That’s my King

Oh!!! I wonder if you know him?

He supplies strength for the weak
He’s available for the tempted and the tried
He sympathizes and he saves
He guards and he guides
He heals the sick
He cleansed the lepers
He forgave sinners
He discharged debtors
He delivers the captives
He defends the feeble
He blesses the young
He serves the unfortunate
He regards the aged
He rewards the diligent
and He beautifies the meek

Oh!!! Do you know him? Do you know?

His office is manifold
His promise is sure
His life is matchless
His goodness is limitless
His mercy is everlasting

His love never changes
His word is enough
His grace is sufficient
His reigning is righteous
His yoke is easy and His burden is light

Oh!! I wish I could describe Him to you

He’s indescribable
He’s incomprehensible
He’s invincible
He’s irresistible
The Heaven of Heavens can’t contain him
Let alone a man try to explain him
You can’t get Him out of your mind
And you can’t off of you hands
You can’t outlive Him
and you can’t live without Him

That’s my King !! That’s my King

The Pharisees couldn’t stand Him
but they found they couldn’t stop Him
Pilate couldn’t find any fault with Him
The witnesses couldn’t get their testimony to agree
Herod couldn’t kill Him
Death couldn’t handle Him


That’s my King !! That’s my King
