“How Many Kings?”


Heroes sometimes come from the most unexpected places.
Is this the one you’ve been waiting for?

All for me...
All for you...

And all for Him.

This song has become one of my favorite Christmas songs.

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’ll suffer
Do you believe?
Is this who we've waited for?


Only one did that for me
All for me...
All for you...
