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 fulfill 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, Majesty
    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

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

    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

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

    Praise forever to the King of Kings
