Worship Song: King of Kings (Deep Dive)
Deep Dive, Podcast  |  Mar 10, 2023

In this bonus episode of the Deep Dive, Calvary's Worship Leader, Caleb Carlson, joins Brad to deep dive the song King of Kings. It's often said that we "sing our theology." There's a reason that kids are taught things through song. God has gifted his church with songs to help us praise his name and to cultivate faith in us as we sing along with others.

Check out this conversation for a bit more background on King of Kings and the impact that gospel-flow songs like this one have on the people of God as we come together to sing and worship Jesus. We hope it blesses you and allows you to sing it with even more meaning next time we gather.



In the darkness we were waiting
Without hope without light
Till 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
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


And the morning that You rose
All of heaven held its breath
Till 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
