By Request, ‘While You Were Sleeping’

By request, While You Were Sleeping by Casting Crowns, from their Christmas album.

There are some who object to the “right-wing politics” in this song, particularly the verse with mentions American “philosophies” such as “save the trees and kill the children,” and describes the USA as “a nation with no room for its king.”

Well, Christ was King of Kings before anyone invented “right-wing politics.” Abortion was a moral wrong 2,000 years ago and it’s still a wrong today, never mind a “president” who says it’s the way young girls achieve their dreams.

But the King will come whether anybody likes it or not: for the Lord hath spoken it.
