Our King of kings and Lord of lords

In a humble manger you were laid,

And visited by the three wise men

Who knew the price that You would pay.

Their gifts were symbolic

As they understood prophetically,

That the gold, frankincense and myrrh

Is what our King would live to see.

When the Father was worshipped in the Holy of Holies

The altar and walls were made of gold,

And now our Jesus has provided the way for us

To have a relationship with God.

Our King of kings You grew to be

God manifested in the flesh;

To reconcile us to the Father

And to give our soul much rest.

The pure frankincense was symbolic

An aroma beautiful and sweet,

With the burning of incense at the altar

Now we worship at Jesus’ feet.

The myrrh was an anointing oil

Used for burial of loved ones,

And the three wise men knew through the Scriptures

Of the sacrifice of God’s Son.

Your victory was loud and clear

When Your resurrection did take place;

With Your ascension as You entered glory

So the second death we do not face.

Our King of kings and Lord of lords

How Your life’s mission glorified God;

You’re our anointed, sweet smelling aroma

With a precious ‘heart of gold.’
