Sunday: To romance a world

How Many Kings?

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

All for me…
All for you…

  1. I absolutely love this song. The words always make me cry, but I could listen to it over and over. Thanks for sharing it.

  2. This song stopped me in my tracks the first time I heard it this year. Followed by me having pull my car over because I was bawling. The immensity of God’s love for me…and for everyone…enough to give up his Son for me…..well, it’s overwhelming, humbling, and makes me love Him more! 🙂

  3. I got this album the other day when you mentioned what a great Christmas song this is. I’m always on the prowl for new music. I love the album, and you’re right- this song is awesome! Merry Christmas!
