King Of The World Lyrics

I try to fit You in the walls inside my mind / I try to keep You safely in between the lines / I try to put You in the box that I’ve designed / I try to pull You down so we are eye to eye // CHORUS: When did I forget that You’ve always been the King of the world / I try to take life back right out of the hands of the King of the world / How could I make You so small / When You’re the one who holds it all / When did I forget that You’ve always been the King of the world // Just a whisper of Your voice can tame the seas / So who am I to try to take the lead? / Still I run ahead and think I’m strong enough / When You’re the one who made me from the dust // REPEAT CHORUS // You set it all in motion / Every single moment / You brought it all to be / And You’re holding on to me // REPEAT CHORUS // You will always be the King of the world
/ But even if You don’t I pray // CHORUS: Help me want the Healer / More than the healing / Help me want the Savior / More than the saving / Help me want the Giver / More than the giving / Oh help me want You, Jesus / More than anything // You know more than anyone that my flesh is weak / And You know I’d give anything for a remedy / And I’ll ask You a thousand more times to set me free today / But even if You don’t I pray // REPEAT CHORUS // When I am desperate and my heart’s overcome / All that I need, You’ve already done / When I am desperate and my heart’s overcome / All that I need, You’ve already done // REPEAT CHORUS

  • I am recalled to these passages of Scripture Holy for what this song provokes in me as I walk through the valley of the shadow of death and in the valley I cannot but view the “Dry Bones” which Ezekiel was commanded to prophesy over (see EZEKIEL 37).

    [JOHN 5:39 (ILB)]You search the Scriptures, because you think in them life everlasting you have, and those are the witnessing about Me.[ ]

    [ISAIAH 43:21-28 (ILB)]This people I formed for Me; My praise they will tell. But not Me you called, Jacob; for you are weary of Me, Israel. Not you have brought to Me lamb; of your burnt offerings, even your sacrifices not honored Me. Not I caused you to serve with a food offering, and not wearied you with frankincense. not You bought for Me with silver calamus, and (with) fat of your sacrifices not you filled Me; but only you made Me serve by your sins; you wearied Me by your iniquities. I, I (am) He blotting out your trespasses for My sake, and your sins not I will remember. Remind Me, let us judge together; sum up (for) yourself, that you may be justified. Your father first sinned, and your interpreters transgressed against Me. So I will defile the chiefs of the sanctuary, and will give to the devoted Jacob, and Israel to blasphemies.[ ]
    FOCUS: [ISAIAH 43:26 (NASB)]Put Me in remembrance; let us argue our case together, State your cause, that you may be proved right.[ ]
    ==> “Put Me in remembrance;” this is to say: Gain [for] your own knowledge and understanding of the Father, Son, and, Holy Spirit and [the] associated with the new covenant that is God instituted ([JEREMIAH 31:31-33 (ILB)][ ]).

  • Arielle Lee says:

    I am growing to listen, & enjoy singing the songs Natalie Grant wrote for the Lord. This song relates to how we could somehow take matters in our own hands, but forgot how important the Lord is, & how He is the one who works in our lives, not the other way around. For it is He who teaches us to be still, (“Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.” Psalm 37:7).
