Lectionary Poetry Advent

Lectionary Reading: Psalm 2

 

The King Will See You Now
Bill Mallonee

A Christmas song about King Herod 
that get the futile plotting of kings just right!

Snippet:

Must be time to guard your turf
must be time to guard your home
whenever the truth shows up drunk with love
and gets too close to the bone

Chorus:
and the pattern, it repeats itself
when power is asked to bow
whenever truth gets ushered in
ah, the king will see you now

there’s always a steel door to be slammed
when she gets a little loud
whenever truth gets outta hand
ah, the king will see you now

….
