Also, that God intended Christ to be the centrality and universality of His move on earth. I recall, as a young person, singing that song and thinking that way. I haven't heard that hymn in recent years. At that time, I just received everything that was said and done.
Here's a funny thought: Maybe bro Lee was a little like Fox News (a right-biased news network in the USA). Things were so skewed toward a low vision of the church (a "cheapened" added word itself) that WL thought he needed to "balance" things out. But in doing so he went a tad far and elevated man even beyond what scripture says.

(And now, like brother Spurgeon was fond of saying, "Let's smoke a cigar to the glory of God!")
