Hymn-a-Day: 66

4. Jesus, our Savior, Shepherd, Friend,

Our Prophet, Priest and King;

Our Lord, our Life, our Way, our End,

Accept the praise we bring.


I love this stanza because Jesus is all of these, at different times and in different situations. What He is, meets our every need (especially because we don’t necessarily know what we need but often just that we are lacking something that will give us a sense of wholeness, and completion). I think I would enjoy it if I were to write all the below short phrases on small slips of paper, but them in a basket, and draw one out in the morning to spend some personal time considering how Jesus is all these things to me.

Jesus is my Savior.

Jesus is my Shepherd.

Jesus is my Friend.

Jesus is my Prophet.

Jesus is my Priest.

Jesus is my King.

Jesus is my Lord.

Jesus is my Life.

Jesus is my Way.

Jesus is my End.

Praise Him!
