He was born in a stable, His mother a virgin, raised in a carpenter shop.
His people were slaves His parents were poor, his friends were a lowly lot.
His chances in life were very slim, He’s expected to be a king.
People in darkness saw light in Him , the hope of freedom He gave.
All of the power of Heaven and earth, God has invested in Him
He’s to die on the cross, descend into Hell, meet the devil, take the keys from him.
He yielded Himself to the death of the cross, cried, “It’s finished!” and slumped to die.
In the regions of hell, the devil celebrated, “We’ve destroyed the king” they cried!
Who is the King of Glory? The Lord God mighty in battle is he.
Who is the King of Glory? The Master and Host of Heaven supreme.
Who is the King of Glory?, The One that not even death could stop.
Who is the King of Glory? The Little Boy from the Carpenter Shop.
In the midst of this celebration, footsteps were heard, Walking thru the corridors of hell.
All the shouting stopped when a voice rang out, a voice that rang like a bell.
Oh Satan did tremble as he recognized Him,
He had come to deliver His own.
“Shut and lock the gates,” Satan cried, “Don’t let Him ascend to His throne!”
Then the gates swung shut in the face of the King, to prove God’s salvation untrue. But Jesus shook hell’s gates and cried, “LIFT UP YOUR HEADS, THE KING IS COMING THRU!” Then out of the devil’s prison house came a procession led by the King shouting, “Now O Grave,– where is thy victory and DEATH, WHERE IS THY STING?”
Who is the King of Glory? The Lord God mighty in battle is He. Who is the King of Glory? The Master on Host of Heaven supreme. Who is the King of Glory? The One the One not even death could stop? Who is the King of Glory? The Little Boy from the Carpenter Shop
