Absolute Authority (Hebrews 2:5-9)

As glorious as flaming angels are,
Was anything entrusted unto them?
God did not let them rule a single star,
But gave the world as the domain of men.
And Jesus Christ claims all authority,
And He redeemed His people from their plight.
Though He descended to mortality,
He’s now exalted, given His birth-right.
And absolute His power now holds sway,
And nothing is exempted from His reign,
Though you may never see it in your day,
Until that time when heaven’s shores we gain.
Have faith – the substance of the things not seen –
And you’ll be given this all-mighty King!

Hold Fast (Hebrews 2:1-4)

Do not neglect the word of Christ,
For angels pale before Him.
You must not dare ignore Him,
Or you will drift from what is right.

For He was ever faithful,
Confirmed by men and angels,
In all the ancient words He wrote.
His law was greatly cherished,
No prophecy has perished,
But all accomplished as He spoke.
Accountable as traitors,
Were all of the law breakers,
And all of them the Lord has broke.

And faithful He’s remaining,
His message still maintaining,
The implications none can sway.
For He now speaks in Jesus,
Apostles also teach us,
In signs and wonders well displayed.
Oh! heed Him – I implore this!
You’re damned if you ignore this!
But seize this and you will be saved.

Worthy Is the Lamb of God (Hebrews 1:4-14)

Worthy is the Lamb of God!
Worthy to become the Son!
He who cleared sin with His blood,
He is worthy! He alone!

God has called Him as His Son,
Heir of all the Father’s praise.
For which angel was this done?
Christ alone received this place.

Who do all the angels serve,
Seated with God on the throne?
Christ alone their praise deserves,
Christ, whose blood for sin atoned.

He makes angel spirits fly,
Ministers of burning flame.
He is seated, throned on high,
Everlasting is His reign.

Mighty as His creatures are,
Wondrous as every work,
He alone ignites the stars;
He created this great earth.

Never did an angel sit,
With the Father on the throne.
Christ alone was given this,
To the Son all honor shown.

Worthy is the Lamb of God!
Worthy to become the Son!
He who cleared sin with His blood,
He is worthy! He alone!
