Hey, everyone! Those who know me and my approach to music know that I am very serious about songwriting and am meticulous about the lyrics I pen down. Lyrics matter, and they always do! We may be drawn to a song because the beat is catchy or the musical arrangement is beautiful, but after the initial drawing, the question is: Are you made to continue listening because of the lyrical content? In fact, what is the message the song is communicating to you? How would the reality of that message impact or effect your life? These are deep questions, I know, but they should be considered as we listen to the vast array of music out there that we have access to.


Well, if you have gotten a chance to listen to my new single, "Hail Him the King," then you know it is right on time for Christmas! My honor is to hear how listeners are being moved by the lyrics to worship Jesus as the King of Kings! Beyond that, I have an even greater hope of hearing the song played and sung amongst God's people when they gather to celebrate the birth of our Lord.


Recently, I was contacted by a worship leader from a church in Georgia, who heard the song and desired to incorporate it into their worship rotation for the holiday season. I was overjoyed! In light of that, I have placed the lyrics to this song in the catalogue at Genius.com and want to make them available for anyone who wants them. I have also included the lyrics underneath this blog article. To all church leadership, worship leaders, and music directors, feel free to contact me for the instrumental track to this song as well. You can email me at info@hagiosmusic.org.

Hail Him the King

Written by Michael E. Peterson Jr.


[Verse 1]

Hail Him, the King

He is lifted high

High above the heaven’s skies

The Creator of all things

Born of a virgin

Spirit overshadowed

Son of the Most High


Laid in a manger

No room for Him, a stranger

Shepherds in the field

Received the first news

With angels singing, “Glory

To God in the highest

Peace on earth, and

Good will toward men.”



[Chorus]

Hail Him

Jesus

The Savior

He’s the Eternal Son of God

The King Who came down

To save us

Emmanuel

He is our God

Among us



[Verse 2]

Hail Him, the King

Praise His holy name

Bow before the Lamb, Who was slain

Seed of a Woman

The Heel of Satan’s bruising

Yet He did prevail

By the precious life He gave


This is our Glorious King!

Who assumed humanity

To become a Suffering Servant

Oh what humility!

A Man of sorrows sure

For my cross He did endure

And won a glorious crown

Worship Him forevermore!



[Chorus]

Hail Him

Jesus

The Savior

He’s the Eternal Son of God

The King Who came down

To save us

Emmanuel

He is our God

Among us



[Verse 3]

Hail Him, the King

Glorify the Lord

The Rich, Who for us became poor

Robed Himself in this flesh

And out of loving-kindness

Gave His life a ransom

To pay our sin’s debt


Now we who are redeemed

Adore His Majesty

Seated on His throne

Jesus reigns, the Prince of Peace!

He is coming back again

As we wait, we live for Him

He will surely take us home

We’ll forever reign with Him!



[Chorus]

Hail Him

Jesus

The Savior

He’s the Eternal Son of God

The King Who came down

To save us

Emmanuel

He is our God

Among us



[Repeat Chorus]

Hail Him

Jesus

The Savior

He’s the Eternal Son of God

The King Who came down

To save us

Emmanuel

He is our God

Among us



He is our God among us

He is our God among us

He is our God among us

He is our God among us
