He Is

I heard a song years ago that I thought was unique. The songwriters went through the Books of the Bible and mention how Jesus was presented or represented or even what He does in each book. I heard it again yesterday.


So today, I bring you the lyrics to this and a link to where you can listen to it as well. I pray that you will be encouraged by this piece of music and that perhaps it is one way to memorize the Books of the Bible. I pray that you might also be encouraged by the many characteristics of our Savior.




In Genesis, He’s the breath of life
In Exodus, the Passover Lamb
In Leviticus, He’s our High Priest
Numbers, the fire by night
Deuteronomy, He’s Moses’ voice


In Joshua, He is salvation’s choice
Judges, law giver
In Ruth, the kinsmen-redeemer
First and second Samuel, our trusted prophet
In Kings and Chronicles, He’s sovereign


Ezra, true and faithful scribe
Nehemiah, He’s the rebuilder of broken walls and lives
In Esther, He’s Mordecai’s courage
In Job, the timeless Redeemer
In Psalms, He is our morning song


In Proverbs, wisdom’s cry
Ecclesiastes, the time and season
In the Song of Solomon, He is the lover’s dream


He is, He is, HE IS!


In Isaiah, He’s Prince of Peace
Jeremiah, the weeping prophet 
In Lamentations, the cry for Israel
Ezekiel, He’s the call from sin 
In Daniel, the stranger in the fire


In Hosea, He is forever faithful
In Joel, He’s the Spirits power 
In Amos, the arms that carry us 
In Obadiah, He’s the Lord our Savior
In Jonah, He’s the great missionary


In Micah, the promise of peace 
In Nahum, He is our strength and our shield
In Habakkuk and Zephaniah, He’s pleading for revival
In Haggai, He restores a lost heritage 
In Zechariah, our fountain


In Malachi, He is the son of righteousness rising with healing in His wings


He is, He is, HE IS!


In Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, He is God, Man, Messiah 
In the book of Acts, He is fire from heaven 
In Romans, He’s the grace of God 
In Corinthians, the power of love 
In Galatians, He is freedom from the curse of sin


Ephesians, our glorious treasure
Philippians, the servants heart 
In Colossians, He’s the Godhead Trinity
Thessalonians, our coming King 
In Timothy, Titus, Philemon He’s our mediator and our faithful Pastor


In Hebrews, the everlasting covenant
In James, the one who heals the sick. 
In First and Second Peter, he is our Shepherd
In John and in Jude, He is the lover coming for His bride
In the Revelation, He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords


He is, He is, HE IS!


The Prince of Peace
The Son of Man 
The Lamb of God 
The great I AM


He’s the Alpha and Omega
Our God and our Savior 
He is Jesus Christ the Lord
and when time is no more 
He is, HE IS![i]


If you want to listen to this song, click here. What I find wonderful about this link is that the person who put this Youtube video together took the time to reference each term or characteristic in that particular book. For further study, you could look up each reference.


Who is Jesus to you? Perhaps one of these phrases spoke clearly to you today. Perhaps the author of this song missed your favorite description of Jesus. If so, I’d love to hear about it.


I pray that you have found encouragement today through this piece of music. I was certainly encouraged yesterday and again today as I listened to it. What a wonderful Savior Jesus is!


Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
