Hymn to Christ the King


Sarah Hart collaborated with her friends Josh Blakesley, Sarah Kroger and Ike Ndolo to compose a contemporary hymn that celebrates the compassionate heart of Christ. Through his kingship, Jesus reveals his abiding presence and deep love for us. This is an appropriate song for Palm Sunday and the Solemnity of Jesus Christ, King of the Universe. The hymn celebrates the humanity of Christ. He was King because he lived as a human, so divinely.

“Oh, we were wandering in the dark: we had lost our hope and way. And we were restless in our hearts, how we needed to be saved. And so to rescue all your own you sent to us your only son. A light to fall, a peace to bring: the coming of our Christ, the King.”
