Where the world comes to study the Bible

Who is This King of Glory

All of the power of Heaven and earth
God had invested in Him
He’s to die on the cross
Descend into hell
Meet the devil
And take the keys from him

So He yielded Himself
To the death on the cross
Cried “It’s finished!” and bowed to die
In the regions of hell
The devil celebrated,
“We’ve destroyed the King!” he cried.

In the midst of the celebration
Footsteps were heard
Walking the corridors of hell
The shouting stopped
When a voice rang out
Twas a voice that rang like a bell

Satan trembled as he recognized Him
Who came to deliver His own.
“Oh shut and lock the gates!” he cried.
“Don’t let Him ascend to His throne!”
So the gate swung shut In the face of the King
To prove God’s salvation untrue

But He shook hell’s gates
And cried, “Lift up your heads
The King is coming through!”
So out of the devil’s prison house
Went a procession led by the King
Shouting — “Now, O grave,
Where is your victory'
And where, O death, thy sting?”

Who is this King of Glory'
The Lord God mighty in battle is He.
Who is the King of Glory'
Maker of Heaven and earth supreme.
Who is the King of Glory'
The One that not even death could stop.
Who is this King of Glory'
Why He’s the babe in the manger
And the little boy from the carpenter shop.
