     34 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together. 35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, 36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

     41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, 42 Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The son of David. 43 He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying, 44 The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool? 45 If David then call him Lord, how is he his son? 46 And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.(KJV)

1. Who Is this that comes from Edom, 
All His raiment stained with blood; 
To the captive speaking freedom, 
Bringing and bestowing good; 
Glorious in the garb He wears, 
Glorious in the spoil He bears? 

2. ‘Tis the Savior, now victorious, 
Traveling onward in His might; 
‘Tis the Savior; oh, how glorious 
To His people is the sight! 
Satan conquered and the grave, 
Jesus now is strong to save. 

3. Why that blood His raiment staining? 
‘Tis the blood of many slain; 
Of His foes there’s none remaining, 
None the contest to maintain. 
Fall’n they are, no more to rise; 
All their glory prostrate lies. 

4. Mighty Victor, reign forever, 
Wear the crown so dearly won; 
Never shall Thy people, never, 
Cease to sing what Thou hast done. 
Thou hast fought Thy people’s foes; 
Thou hast healed Thy people’s woes.
