THIS LITTLE CHILD IS KING!

Psalms of Honesty and Truth

Our journey brings us to another season of Christmas. Christmas songs play non stop on my favorite radio station to and from work and all other trips through town. All the tinsel, bright lights and shiny objects that abound serve as distractions from the mundane. Homes look more festive. When snow falls, it just adds to the artistry of Christmas. Cheesy, but at least without violence and bad language, Hallmark movies bring on “good feelings” in a lot of us as we shed tears from memories similar to what is portrayed in the stories. Commercials tell us we must shop for the perfect gift. Then, in the middle of it all, we stop to remember the perfect gift is Jesus!

After years of darkness and no communication from God to His people, a child is born. This little child will be the King. Yes, this the ONE who David reveals in his psalm of prophesy as King of kings and Lord of lords!

Psalm 110, New Living Translation
A psalm of David.

1 The Lord said to my Lord,[a]
“Sit in the place of honor at my right hand
until I humble your enemies,
making them a footstool under your feet.”

2 The Lord will extend your powerful kingdom from Jerusalem[b];
you will rule over your enemies.
3 When you go to war,
your people will serve you willingly.
You are arrayed in holy garments,
and your strength will be renewed each day like the morning dew.

4 The Lord has taken an oath and will not break his vow:
“You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.”

5 The Lord stands at your right hand to protect you.
He will strike down many kings when his anger erupts.
6 He will punish the nations
and fill their lands with corpses;
he will shatter heads over the whole earth.
7 But he himself will be refreshed from brooks along the way.
He will be victorious.

It is so fitting that we come to this psalm on this day. It reminds me of another song, long ago, that Randy and I loved so much we put photo slides to it and presented it to the congregation. This song has been on my heart and in my mind for days…and “I will always sing, this little Child, is the King of kings!”

THIS LITTLE CHILD
Verse 1
Who would have thought that long ago
So very far away
A little child would be born
And in a manger laid

And who would have thought this little child
Was born the King of kings
The Son of just the carpenter
For whom the angels sing

And who would have thought that as He grew
And with other children played
This child of whom they laughed and sang
Would die for them some day

And who would have thought this little child
Could make a blind man see
Feed the hungry make rich the poor
And set the sinner free

Oh, who would have thought this little child
Was who the prophets said
Would take away the sins of man
And rise up from the dead

Chorus 1
Oh, I believe and I will always sing
This little child is the King
Oh, I believe and I will always sing
This little child
He is the King of kings

Verse 2
Many years have come and gone
Yet this world remains the same
Empires have been built and fallen
Only time has made a change
Nation against nation
Brother against brother
Men so filled with hatred
Killing one another
And over half the world is starving
While our banner of decency is torn
Debating over disarmament
Killing children before they’re born
And fools who march to win the right
To justify their sin
Oh, every nation that has fallen
Has fallen from within
Yet in the midst of this darkness
There is a hope a light that burns
This little child the King of kings
Some day will return

Chorus 2
And I believe and I will always sing
This little child is the King
And I believe and I will always sing
This little child
He is the King of kings

Verse 3
Who would have thought this little child
Is who the prophets said
Will return to judge this world
The living and the dead
Oh, can’t you see that long ago
So very far away
This little child our only hope
Was born a King that day!
