“Long live the King, the King, Long live the King”
The Herald brings good news: a son is born.
“Long live the King, the King”, the people sing
Joy in the kingdom, good news this blessed morn.
Duke and Duchess rejoice! Come to the feast!
Prophets, priests and scribes come celebrate this day!
Share the bounty from the great to the least!
Long live the King, He will show us the way.
But this King’s reign on earth would be cut short.
The principles of wealth and faith and law
Hold too much power in the worldly court.
This King’s way quickly pointed out that flaw.
But rising again He gives hope to all,
Living forever, “Good News!” heralds call!
