King of Kings


King of Kings

Music for Choirs, Submitted Music (1998-2006)

The night was chill, the winds were still, the angels in heaven were waiting.

The time was near when the world would hear of the birth of the King of Kings.

The place was spare, no comforts there, to shelter or herald His coming.

The Lord of Light, who comes this night, is Jesus, the King of Kings.

He will bring joy to all people, and peace and good will toward men.

There will be joy for all people, if they will believe in Him.

 

The angel told in language bold, his tidings to shepherds quaking.

“Fear not,” said he, “For you shall see the Child, the King of Kings”

They went with haste to find the place, where the Holy Child lay sleeping,

While angel choirs with tongues of fire sang praise to the King of Kings.

He will bring joy to all people, and peace and good will toward men.

There will be joy for all people, if they will believe in Him.

 

Let now all people honor Him with angel choruses sing Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

And from afar, the wondrous star led wise men westward seeking,

Their gifts to bring to the Infant King, the Savior, the King of Kings.

He will bring joy to all people and life and salvation for man.

There will be joy for all people if they will believe on Him.

And we, as they of ancient day, bring homage and hearts adoring.

Our voices ring, our praises sing to Jesus the King of Kings!

He will bring joy to all people, and life eternal for man.

There will be joy for all people if they will believe on Him.

He will bring joy! Joy! Joy to the world! Sing Alleluia, Alleluia!

There will be joy! Joy! Joy to the world! Jesus is King of Kings.  Sing joy and Halleluia!

Sing Halleluia!  We honor the King of Kings!
