The Word of God

Our youth ministry used the lyrics to this song recently at a worship event. The song is entitled “He Is” by Aaron Jeoffries and it articulates the activity of Christ throughout the Bible. I wanted to archive it here in light of our yearlong study of The Story:

In Genesis, He’s the breath of life
In Exodus, the Passover Lamb
In Leviticus, He’s our High Priest
Numbers, the fire by night
Deuteronomy, He’s Moses’ voice
In Joshua, He is salvation’s choice
Judges, He’s the giver of the law
In Ruth, the kinsman-redeemer
First and Second Samuel, our trusted prophet
In Kings and Chronicles, He’s sovereign
 
Ezra, true and faithful scribe
Nehemiah, He’s the rebuilder of broken walls and lives
In Esther, He’s Mordecai’s courage
In Job, the timeless redeemer
In Psalms, He is our morning song
 
In Proverbs, wisdom’s cry
Ecclesiastes, the time and season
In the Song of Solomon, He is the lover’s dream
 
In Isaiah, He’s Prince of Peace
Jeremiah, the weeping prophet
In Lamentations, the cry for Israel
Ezekiel, He’s the call from sin
In Daniel, the stranger in the fire
In Hosea, He is forever faithful
 
In Joel, He’s the Spirit’s power
In Amos, the arms that carry us
In Obadiah, He’s the Lord our Savior
In Jonah, He’s the great missionary
 
In Micah, the promise of peace
In Nahum, He is our strength and our shield
In Habakkuk and Zephaniah, He’s pleading for revival
In Haggai, He restores a lost heritage
In Zechariah, He’s our fountain
In Malachi, He is the son of righteousness rising with healing in His wings.
 
In Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John He is God, Man, Messiah
In Acts, He is fire from heaven
In Romans, He’s the grace of God
In Corinthians, the power of love
In Galatians, He is freedom from the curse of sin
 
Ephesians, our glorious treasure
Philippians, the servants heart
In Colossians, He’s the Godhead Trinity
Thessalonians, our coming King
In Timothy, Titus, Philemon He’s our mediator and our faithful pastor
 
In Hebrews, the everlasting covenant
In James, the One who heals the sick
In Peter, He is our Shepherd
In John and Jude, He is faithfully coming for His bride
In the Revelation, He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords
 
The prince of peace
The Son of man
The Lamb of God
The great I AM
 
He’s the Alpha and Omega
Our God and our Savior
He is Jesus Christ the Lord
And when time is no more
He is…
