King of Kings

When writing Wednesday’s blog post I Live To Serve, and looking for a video of the worship song ‘King of Kings, Majesty’, I came across the following recording. The words and the music really spoke to me and so I want to share theses with you tonight – It’s another recording by the worship band at Liverpool Alton Salvation Army, and is a verse of the Hillsong song ‘King of Kings’.

In the darkness we were waiting
Without hope without light
Till from heaven You came running
There was mercy in Your eyes
To fulfil the law and prophets

To a virgin came the Word
From a throne of endless glory
To a cradle in the dirt

Praise the Father
Praise the Son
Praise the Spirit three in one
God of glory
Praise forever to the King of Kings

To reveal the kingdom coming
And to reconcile the lost
To redeem the whole creation
You did not despise the cross

For even in Your suffering
You saw to the other side
Knowing this was our salvation
Jesus for our sake You died

And the morning that You rose
All of heaven held its breath
Till that stone was moved for good
For the Lamb had conquered death

And the dead rose from their tombs
And the angels stood in awe
For the souls of all who’d come
To the Father are restored

And the Church of Christ was born
Then the Spirit lit the flame
Now this gospel truth of old
Shall not kneel shall not faint

By His blood and in His Name
In His freedom I am free
For the love of Jesus Christ
Who has resurrected me

I think what touched me most about this song, was how it reminded that even when we feel God is distant, he soon reminds us that through Him we can find hope of a brighter tomorrow.

We are forgiven and free because of the hope he freely gave to us through Jesus’ death and resurrection. Because of that, what else can we do but sing “Praise forever to the King of Kings”!
