156 Christ Expresses What the Spirit Is

Verse 1

God incarnate knows man’s essence,

reveals all things all people do,

most of all, man’s corrupt disposition

and rebellious conduct too.

He does not live with worldly ones,

but knows their nature, corruption.

Chorus 1

This is what He is.

Though He does not deal with the world,

yet He knows every rule to engage with it.

For He understands mankind,

fully understands their nature.

Verse 2

He knows about the Spirit’s working

of today and the past as well,

that human eyes just cannot see,

that human ears just cannot hear.

This shows wonders man can’t comprehend,

wisdom that is not philosophy.

Chorus 2

This is what He is,

both revealed and hidden from man.

His expression is not that of an extraordinary man,

but the inherent being

and attributes of the Spirit.

Verse 3

He does not travel round the world,

yet knows all things about it.

He meets with those with no knowledge or insight,

yet His words are above great men.

He lives among the dumb and numb people,

who don’t know human ways, how to live.

Bridge

But He can ask them to live out true human life,

while revealing how low, how base they are!

Chorus 3

This is what He is,

higher than those of flesh and blood.

Exposing, judging man is not from His experience.

Knowing, hating man’s disobedience,

He reveals their unrighteousness.

Outro

The work that He does serves to reveal

His disposition and being to man.

No flesh can do such work, but Christ, oh.
