He Is Who He Is

He is my rock,
And He is my redeemer.
He is the Way,
The Truth and the Life.

He is the Way,
The Truth and the Life.
He is God’s Son.
He is who He is.

He is my light,
And He is my salvation.
He’s the Good Shepherd,
The Bread of Life.

He’s the Good Shepherd,
The Bread of Life.
He is God’s Son.
He is who He is.

He is the Word
Who was with God in beginning.
He is the Word
Who Himself is God.

He is the Word
Who Himself is God.
He is God’s Son.
He is who He is.

About This Song:
RogerCapped - smaller
In Exodus 3:14, God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.'” The same idea, using the Hebrew word translated as “I AM,” is found in numerous places in the Old Testament. When the Jewish people heard that word, they knew it was a reference to the Living God.

As the Son of God, Jesus had the right to refer to Himself as “I AM,” too. Look at these references…

John 6:51:“I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever;”

John 8:23: And He said to them, “You are from beneath; I AM from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.

John 8:12: Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I AM the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

John 8:58: Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”

John 10:9: “I AM the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.”

John 10:11: “I AM the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.

John 10:36: “Do you say of Him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’?

John 11:25: Jesus said to her, “I AM the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.

John 14:6: Jesus said to him, “I AM the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

John 15:1: “I AM the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.

John 19:2: Therefore the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, “Do not write, ‘The King of the Jews,’ but, ‘He said, “I am the King of the Jews.”‘”

I AM signifies that God is alive today. He has always been alive and always will be.

That’s the essence of this song. And the fact that I believe it.

But the question is whether you believe God is alive now and whether Jesus is living in you.

You may find the PDF lead sheet for this song here. An audio recording of this song is available here. If you’re a guitar player trying out the lead sheet, be sure to listen to the song because the Bm7 and D#Maj7 may not be where you expect them to be.

I’ll be back again next Wednesday. Please check back then or, better still, sign up to receive these posts by email.
