A Song for the King of Kings
A couple of weeks ago in our secondary chapels, our praise team led us in a new song that I had never heard before. It’s a song that talks about some of the major things that happened when Jesus came to earth, which is what we celebrate at Christmas. Here is what this song mentions:
- We were waiting in darkness, without hope and light.
- Jesus came running with mercy in His eyes.
- Jesus fulfilled the law and the prophets, born of a virgin.
- Jesus left His throne in heaven to be born in a cradle in the dirt.
- Jesus came to reveal His kingdom and to redeem the lost.
- Jesus willingly went to the cross, for He saw that His suffering would buy our salvation.
- On the morning that Jesus rose from the dead, He had conquered death.
- The souls of those who believe are restored to God, the Father.
- The Christian church was born, and the Holy Spirit was given to us.
- The Old Testament prophecies were fulfilled, and the good news of salvation is now being proclaimed.
- Jesus’ blood paid the price for our sins so that all those who believe are now free from condemnation and death.
The chorus says:
Praise the Father, praise the Son, praise the Spirit, three in one.
God of glory, Majesty. Praise forever to the King of kings.
Mr. Totten, our chaplain, told us that during this time that we call Advent, we are anticipating the birth of Jesus, the King. But he also reminded us that Jesus will be coming again, for in the end, God ultimately wins! He will restore things to the way He intended them to be, and we will have fellowship with Him.
As we celebrate Christmas this year, let us give thanks to God for the gift of His Son, Jesus, and let us wait with anticipation His glorious return.
If you would like to listen to this song, I’ve provided the link below.
Wishing you a Blessed Christmas and a Joyful New Year!
Because of His Faithfulness,
