King of Israel - About the Song

King of Israel was inspired by a sermon I heard by Ray Hughes at my church. Ray Hughes is a great music historian. I was captivated and fascinated by his story, about Handel, and the history behind Handel, and the Messiah Chorus. 

As a writer, I like to honor the great writers of old, and tap into what was in their
hearts at the time. With so much paganism in Christmas, I wanted to connect with something of value, that would Honor God. When you listen to the Hallelujah Chorus, it is really deep. 

Stories about Handel even say He was praying, or he was weeping, or he was staring into eternity.

He was definitely a deep writer for his day. I wanted to write a song about Jesus Birth and tie it in somehow with Handel's Messiah.

What I love about most Hymns or older worship songs is that they focus on the righteousness of Christ in us. The Messiah Chorus is not short of themes of Salvation and righteousness. 

The Messiah Chorus is a timeless song about the Lord's salvation for us, the very gospel message and that He will Reign Forever.

I wanted to bring in those same elements highlighting Salvation and Righteousness.

King of Israel is not just meant for Christmas time which is why we are including it in our album. The message is that Jesus came so we might become His righteousness.


King of Israel

Bring Your Gifts to the Lord for this day Messiah came.
Righteousness is being restored. Let the Angels rejoice and sing
rejoice and sing

Hallelujah ah to the King to the King

Hallelujah ah to the King the King of Israel

Glory Shines within the skies Let Angelic hosts proclaim
Join the triumph of the king Salvations victory
Salvations victory

Hallelujah ah to the King to the King

Hallelujah ah to the King the King of Israel to the King

And He Shall Reign Forever and ever
And He Shall Reign Forever and ever

And He Shall Reign Forever and ever
And He Shall Reign Forever and ever

Hallelujah ah to the King to the King
Hallelujah ah to the King the King of Israel
