A Bit About The Song…

King of Kings
“And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse, and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness, he doth judge and makes war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name is written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords.” Revelation 19:11-16
And he was no less King of kings and Lord of lords, clothed with Humanity, bleeding, bruised, and allowing himself to be nailed to the cross to die for our sins.
The Jews were looking for a Messiah to be revealed in outward shows. They expected Him, by one flash of overmastering will, to change the current of men’s thoughts, and force from them an acknowledgment of His supremacy. Thus, they believed, He was to secure His own exaltation, and gratify their ambitious hopes. Thus when Christ was treated with contempt, there came to Him a strong temptation to manifest His divine character. By a word, by a look, He could compel His persecutors to confess that He was Lord above kings and rulers, priests and temple. But it was His difficult task to keep to the position He had chosen as one with humanity.
Christ suffered keenly under abuse and insult. At the hands of the beings whom He had created, and for whom He was making an infinite sacrifice, He received every indignity. And He suffered in proportion to the perfection of His holiness and His hatred of sin. His trial by men who acted as fiends was to Him a perpetual sacrifice. To be surrounded by human beings under the control of Satan was revolting against Him. And He knew that in a moment, by the flashing forth of His divine power, He could lay His cruel tormentors in the dust. This made the trial harder to bear.
Jesus held His peace. “He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth: He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep, before her shearers is dumb, so He openeth not His mouth.” Isaiah 53:7.
At last, Caiaphas, raising his right hand toward heaven, addressed Jesus in the form of a solemn oath: “I adjure Thee by the living God, that Thou tell us whether Thou be the Christ, the Son of God.”
Every ear was bent to listen, and every eye was fixed on His face as He answered, “Thou hast said.”
For a moment the divinity of Christ flashed through His guise of humanity. The high priest quailed before the penetrating eyes of the Saviour. That look seemed to read his hidden thoughts and burn into his heart. Never in the afterlife did he forget that searching glance of the persecuted Son of God.
A heavenly light seemed to illuminate His pale countenance as He added, “Nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.”

 

“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.”
Revelation 1:7

Lyrics

 

Lift your eyes up to heaven

See the King on His throne

With the thorns on His brow

Thine be the glory

Thine be the glory

The Alpha and Omega

The Beginning and the End

The coming Prince of Peace

The King of Glory, King of kings

His bloodstained hair is hanging down

His lips are parched

He gasps for air

His hands and feet

Are nailed to His throne

His mocking subjects

Crowd around Him

Hailing Him with jeering sneers

As He cries, “Father, forgive them!”

Thine be the glory

Thine be the glory

The Alpha and Omega

The Beginning and the End

The coming Prince of Peace

The King of Glory, King of kings

The lightning flashes

Around His throne

The thunder crashes

A cry that tears the earth and sky

“My God, why hast thou forsaken Me?”

“My God, where are You? I’m searching for You.”

The trembling lips now pale and silent

The matted hair, the blood washed face

The pulseless breast, the lifeless hands

Behold the King on His throne

Do you love Him who buys your soul

At the price of His own?

The King of kings, the Lord of lords

Who died to set you free

King of kings and Lord of lords!
