Birth Of A Great King

Birth Of A Great King

Someday a great king shall be born;
From the loins of David the king
a king called the Messiah shall be born.
And the government upon his shoulder be
A mighty king clothed in wisdom.
He will rule his kingdom with great wisdom

In anticipation waited mankind
When someday turned one day
For the great king of all to come
through her who knew no man.
His birth a miracle beyond human comprehension
Beyond man’s understanding his birth a testimonial

Of a truth someday turned one day.
In that little town of Bethlehem
where the father had chosen,
came forth the manifestation of the prophesy
Prophesied by prophets of old-
Isaiah, Jeremiah and Micah
Came the birth of a great King just as prophesied by them of old

The light of the world finally born
Angels wing your flight over all the earth
Ye who sang creation’s song
Now proclaim the messiah’s birth
Let shepherds on field experience that joy
From east, west, north and south
Let all come and worship the newborn king.

Oh what a wonder thou art
ye born of the Virgin Mary in a borrowed inn
Birthed in a stable, laid in a manger
All fast asleep except the foolish beings of no personality
Remained companion of the great king in that inn
Alas! Emmanuel born just as said by prophet Isaiah

Hark the herald angel sing
Glory to the newborn king
Whose shoulder responsibilities of the globe lay.
All awake salute the happy morning
Rise to adore the mystery of love
These hosts of angels chant from above
Hail the heaven born prince of peace.

Hail the sun of righteousness
Light and life to all He brings
Born that men no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth
To give them second birth.
Born to deliver from the dungeon
Born to be the lily in the valley.

All hail the great king
Born to be poor that I may be rich
Born to enthrone and dethrone
Born to be the fourth man in your burning furnace
Your defence with fence of fire
Born to be the first and last
Oh come let us celebrate
the birth of the great king of Israel.
