“For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.”
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13‬:‭12‬ ‭ESV‬‬

As the parent of an adult child with disabilities, I’ve experienced a Whole Lot of Love, but I’ve also seen a Ton of Injustice over the years. The song idea for “What The King Didn’t Know” came to me after seeing those who are powerful repeatedly abusing and bullying the powerless.

We are called to look after those who cannot take care of themselves. In my frustration, I cried and questioned and prayed. God reminded me of the story of King Herod and the Christ child. That king had no idea who he was messing with. ❤

One little baby, laid in a manger

I find my peace and my HOPE in knowing I serve a God who is All Powerful, but is not without compassion.

“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tested in every way as we are, yet without sin.” Hebrews‬ ‭4‬:‭15‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

He sent His own Son as a baby, fully divine, yet fully human, to experience every injustice we have and more. He knows the heart of every man. I rest in the fact that one day nothing will be hidden, and He will ultimately right every wrong. Below are the lyrics to the song.

What The King Didn’t Know

One little baby, laid in a manger

Two knelt beside Him while angels sang

Three came the wise men. Then Herod, the stranger

vowed he had plans for the small Nazarene

But the king didn’t know the Power of God

How the meek get their strength from the Staff and the Rod

Where that little child lead, wise men still follow

‘Cause we can believe in, what the king didn’t know

Herod passed on, but Christ lives Forever

In every heart of those born again

Deaths Keys were snatched from the Master Deceiver

Salvation was given to mere mortal man

But the king didn’t know the Power of God

How the meek get their strength from the Staff and the Rod

Where that little child lead, wise men still follow

‘Cause we can believe in, what the king didn’t know

We must remember when we’re feeling small

The One who is with us, will Rise Above All

But the king didn’t know the Power of God

How the meek get their strength from the Staff and the Rod

Where that little child lead, wise men still follow

‘Cause we can believe in, what the king didn’t know

Yes, we can believe in, what the king didn’t know

Until Next Time,

Know The Hope!
