Lyrics: Verse 1:
He had the power, He had the splendor
Yet He was gentle, and He was tender;
He is my Savior, my Lord and King.
To Him I whisper, to Him I sing.
He lived the moment, he faced the day--
Whatever hardships that came his way.
He lived in danger from wicked men
But he defied them again and again.

He is my Savior, He is my friend,
His name I’ll honor, His truth I will defend.

Verse 2:
He had the power but only used it
To heal and comfort, and not abuse it.
He chose to live here as one of us,
Amid the sinners, amid the dust.
And when the power He would refuse,
He taught all mankind that we could choose.
What is the best gift we can bestow?
It is the freedom to learn and to grow.
Verse 3:
He knew his power was from his father
And it was based on celestial honor.
There is no glory in using force,
For light and knowledge are power’s source.
He had the power to take command,
To give us orders and make demands,
Instead he taught us we have a choice.
We have the right and the will and the voice.

Verse 4:
And Satan’s plan was, to steal the power,
And force all mankind to fear and cower;
His way required the use of force
With no repentance and no remorse.
Instead with patience we can persuade
And this is how love, and trust are made.
And so by teaching we can induce,
With no coercion, and no abuse.
