The King of Kings


The King of Kings

Music for Choirs, Submitted Music (2007-2011)

There was no fanfare, no gathering of crowds.

There were no trumpets resounding long and loud.

There were no feasts declared, no one to dance or sing,

No one the bells to ring, announcing this new king.

But there were shepherds, and there were angels, who did worship this little boy.

And there was Joseph, and there was Mary, whose hearts were filled with joy.

For they knew this little baby, He was the Son of God.

Their King! The King of Kings!

 

There was no palace, no wondrous place to stay.

There was no cradle or bed on which to lay.

There were no servants there to make him nice and warm,

To keep him safe from storm, the night when he was born.

But there were shepherds, and there were angels, who did worship this little boy.

And there was Joseph, and there was Mary, whose hearts were filled with joy.

For they knew this little baby, He was the Son of God.

Their King! The King of Kings!

 

The world now knows that this baby is our King.

The world no knows that salvation he did bring.

The world now celebrates for we will live again,

Life will never end, because of him our friend.

We with the shepherds, and with the angels, do now worship this little boy.

We join with Joseph, and also Mary, for our hearts are filled with joy.

Yes, we know this little baby, He is the Son of God.

Our King! The King of Kings!
