He Is Lord

Representative Text

He is Lord, He is Lord!
He is risen from the dead and he is Lord!
Ev'ry knee shall bow, ev'ry tongue confess
That Jesus Christ is Lord.

Notes

Scripture References:
st. = Phil. 2: 10-11

One of numerous anonymous Scripture songs arising out of the charismatic movement during the 1960s and following, this popular song is drawn from the well-known confession of faith recorded in Philippians 2: 10-11. There Paul appears to be quoting from an early Christian hymn that was used as a profession of faith. The following are additional stanzas, also anonymous, printed in the British Methodist Hymns and Psalms and in The Worshiping Church (1990); these may be freely reprinted in church bulletins:

He is King, he is King!
He will draw all nations to him, he is King;
and the time shall be when the world shall sing
that Jesus Christ is King!

He is Love, he is Love!
He has shown us by his life that he is Love.
All his people sing with one voice of joy
that Jesus Christ is Love!

He is Life, he is Life!
He has died to set us free and he is Life;
and he calls us all to live evermore,
for Jesus Christ is Life!

These additional stanzas use phrases from John's gospels to extol Christ as the king who draws all nations to him (John 12:32), as the source and model of love (1 John 3:16), and as the surety for eternal life (1 John 5:11).

Liturgical Use:
As a sung profession of faith in many different times and places of worship; during the Easter season; Lord's Supper.
