The Promise Keeper

And I will make you a great nation

And I will bless you and make your name great

Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham

From the line of Judah he will come

I will establish his kingdom

And he shall be to me a son

Conceived by a virgin, they shall call him “Immanuel”

He will die for their sins, rescuing them from hell

Bethlehem is the throne room of this newborn king

The Ruler and long-awaited Savior of whom angels sing

In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord

Make straight in the desert a highway for our God

“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand”

Proclaims John before baptizing the Son of Man

Behold the king riding on a beast of burden will lead you

And I will put my words in his mouth, all that is true

Woe to every soul that does not listen to this prophet

For he is a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek

Praying “Let this cup pass from me but your will be done”

God’s love, mercy and grace displayed in his only son

But by the chief priests, the scribes and Pilate, he is condemned

All who see him mock him, saying “Let the Lord deliver him”

The star, the scepter rises out of Israel

And I have set my King on Zion, my holy hill

Encircled by evildoers, they pierced his hands and feet

Come near, touch these cruel nail marks and believe

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me, he cries

From the Cross “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?”

Since he had already died, the soldiers did not break his bones

But those who crucified him cast lots for his princely robe

“He was pierced for our transgressions and with his wounds we are healed”

“He is not here, for he has risen, as he said”, an empty tomb revealed

Conquering sin’s curse forever, bruising the head of the serpent

Redeeming to himself all who believe, obey and humbly repent

Ascended on high, carried up into heaven to prepare a place for his very own

Jesus Christ, the Lord and Savior

The Messiah!

The Promise Keeper of God

“My eyes long for your salvation and for the fulfillment of your righteous promise.”

Psalm 119:123 ESV
