Today... 'Blessèd and only Potentate'

No mortal man can bear the awesome sight
of the One in unapproachable light
Blessèd and only Potentate from heaven
To Him all honour and power is given.

The King of kings and Lord of lords is He
The Omnipotent One no man can see.
To Him shall all the praise and glory be
for He's now crowned with immortality.

Sovereign Lord and Ruler of all men
Blessèd and only Potentate from heaven.
In God's great plan the time is yet to come
When He shall appear and call us home.

Then in heaven we shall rejoice and bring
praise and worship to our Heavenly King.
Cast down our crowns as before Him we fall
The Blessèd and only Potentate of all.

There in heaven stands the Lamb Who was slain
No other man is more worthy to reign.
Seated as King of kings and Lord of lords
with the highest honour that heaven affords.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

1 Timothy 6: 13-16
I urge you in the sight of God who gives life to all things, and before Christ Jesus who witnessed the good confession before Pontius Pilate, that you keep this commandment without spot, blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ's appearing, which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honour and everlasting power. Amen.

All quotations ©NIV

The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting an aspect
of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
'The Blessèd and only Potentate '
