King of Kings
Brooke Ligertwood Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

In the darkness, we were waiting
Without hope, without light
'Til from Heaven You came running
There was mercy in Your eyes
To fulfill the law and prophets
To a virgin came the Word
From a throne of endless glory
To a cradle in the dirt

Praise the Father, praise the Son
Praise the Spirit, three in one
God of glory, Majesty
Praise forever to the King of Kings

To reveal the kingdom coming
And to reconcile the lost
To redeem the whole creation
You did not despise the cross
For even in Your suffering
You saw to the other side
Knowing this was our salvation
Jesus for our sake You died

Praise the Father, praise the Son
Praise the Spirit, three in one
God of glory, Majesty
Praise forever to the King of Kings

And the morning that You rose
All of Heaven held its breath
'Til that stone was moved for good
For the Lamb had conquered death
And the dead rose from their tombs
And the angels stood in awe
For the souls of all who'd come
To the Father are restored
And the church of Christ was born
Then the Spirit lit the flame
Now this gospel truth of old
Shall not kneel, shall not faint
By His blood and in His name
In His freedom I am free
For the love of Jesus Christ
Who has resurrected me, ohh

Praise the Father, praise the Son
Praise the Spirit, three in one
God of glory, Majesty
Praise forever to the King of Kings





Praise forever to the King of Kings

Overall Meaning

The song "King of Kings" by Brooke Ligertwood is a beautiful ode to Jesus, the King of Kings. The song starts by describing the darkness and hopelessness that existed in the world before Jesus came. However, when Jesus came, He brought with Him mercy, light, and hope. The song describes how Jesus fulfilled the prophecies made in ancient scriptures and was born to a virgin, coming from a throne of glory to be born in a cradle of dirt.


The chorus of the song is a beautiful reminder to praise the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, three in one. The song speaks about how Jesus came to reconcile the lost and redeem the whole creation, not despising the cross, and even though He suffered, He saw salvation on the other side. The song exalts Jesus as the King of Kings who conquered death and rose from the dead. When Jesus rose from the dead, it was a stunning moment that even heaven held its breath. The song ends with the church of Christ being born, and the Spirit lighting the flame. The gospel truth will forever stand, and through Jesus' blood, we are free.


The song is a beautiful reminder of the love, mercy, and grace that Jesus embodies. It speaks of how Jesus came to save the lost, to bring hope and light to a dark world, and how He conquered death and rose again, restoring all who come to the Father.
