That's My King!

Therefore God also has highly exalted him,
and given him a name which is above every
name: That at the name of Jesus every knee
should bow, of things in heaven, and things
in earth, and things under the earth; And
that every tongue should confess that Jesus
Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Philippians 2:9-11

You can't get Him out of your mind.
You can't get Him off of your hand.
You can't out live Him,
And you can't live without Him.

The Pharisees couldn't stand Him,
But they found out they couldn't stop Him.
Pilate couldn't find any fault in Him.
Herod couldn't kill Him.
Death couldn't handle Him,
And the grave couldn't hold Him.

Yeah! That's my King. That's my King!
