Today... 'The King of Kings'
Enthroned upon high as Sovereign Lord
mighty angels and men obey Your word
prostrate before Your throne they bend
for Your eternal kingdom will never end.
Every knee before You shall bow down
and Your Praise shall all other praises drown.
Omnipotent and glorious in might
the King of kings is a wonderful sight

The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting a glorious
aspect of Your Divine Nature.
