King, Lord, Head, and Husband

1
We must enjoy, experience, and take Christ as our King,
The One who rules the universe, in us, is everything;
With conscience clear, His presence here beneath the heav’nly throne
Allow the reigning life within to make our hearts His home.
2
We must enjoy, experience, and take Christ as our Lord,
We live to Him, we die to Him, bought by His precious blood;
We are the Lord’s, His life outpoured becomes our strength within,
Then all our labor in the Lord is absolutely Him.
3
We must enjoy, experience, and take Christ as our Head;
By Christ, the resurrected One, we constantly are led;
This fourfold power to the church becomes our heav’nly link,
Abundantly supplying all, more than we ask or think.
4
We must enjoy, experience, and take Christ as our Spouse,
Our Husband, the pneumatic Christ, will build our spiritual house;
Affectionate and personal, our Husband is our Friend,
Our Advocate, our Comforter, our Shepherd without end.
5
Our Husband, Head, our Lord and King, is Christ, the glorified;
By life His Body will be built, His Bride be beautified;
The gates of hell cannot prevail when we are built in Him,
This Christ enjoyed will usher in the New Jerusalem!
