The King who loves me

“How Many Kings”
by Downhere:

Follow the star to a place unexpected.
Would you believe, after all we’ve projected,
A child in a manger?
Lowly and small, the weakest of all,
Unlikeliest hero, wrapped in his mother’s shawl –
Just a child
Is this who we’ve waited for?

‘Cause how many kings step down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least for me?
And how many gods have poured out their hearts
To romance a world that is torn all apart?
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?

Bringing our gifts for the newborn Saviour,
All that we have, whether costly or meek
Because we believe.
Gold for his honour, and frankincense for his pleasure,
And myrrh for the cross he will suffer.
Do you believe?
Is this who we’ve waited for?

How many kings step down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least for me?
And how many gods have poured out their hearts
To romance a world that is torn all apart?
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?

Only one did that for me –
All for me, all for you.

The song can be heard here. I find the images distracting, so if you do also, you may wish to scroll up and read along with the words as they are sung.
