A Humble King

a humble king
in a manger bed
not a king upon a throne
so entered our savior
into the world
each of us to save

not what was expected
not even in the least
the Messiah in a bed of straw
a stranger in the home of David
chosen by the Lord

serving, not being served
unknown in his youth
rising from the waters
to go and do the master’s work

out into the land
walking on sandaled feet
healing and to preach
offering us much to learn
in what he had to teach

going to the cross, our Lord
humbly submitting to God
going as he had come into the world
a humble king, on Calvary

only in rising, on Easter morn’
ascending to heaven above
the truth of the prophesy fulfilled
this humble king the Christ
