‘Who is the King of Glory?’

From G. F. Handel’s The Messiah, this is Who is the King of Glory?, performed by the Crown College Choir.

I heard a Bible lesson on the radio once. Read these three Psalms back-to-back: 22, 23, and 24. Try it, go ahead. Together they teach Christ’s passion, death, and triumphant resurrection.

Hmm…. What if nobody wants to open the gates, when the King of Glory is ready to come in?

I don’t think you want to be there when that happens.

  1. When Jesus said those famous words on the cross: ‘My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me’, I believe he was pointing us to these Psalms – teaching from the Cross, telling the people that He Is The Promised One.

  2. Yes, and that reminds me of the old song written by Dallas Holm called, I’ll Rise Again. One line is “nothing in this world can tie me down”. I love that song. He is triumphant, indeed.

    1. Erlene, have you noticed I’ve been posting a lot of Christian hymns and music here? I take reader requests, so I hope you don’t mind if I consider this a request and post the hymn accordingly. I do love those old hymns.
