[Continuing the hymn-for-Sundays series]
“All authority in heaven
and on earth to Me is given”.
While on earth, Jesus, the Lord
food created, sight restored.
As He taught – men were astonished –
with authority admonished,
and the Way of grace conveyed
– repentance, faith must be displayed.
Ostentatious leaders found
their verbal traps He could confound.
Satan could not make him sin.
Satan’s sway was crumbling.
Still on earth, Christ’s Spirit stirs
minds to see through Satan’s slurs
and one day this King will come –
then His rule we all will own.
(sse Matthew's gospel chapter 28 verse 18)
