Elvis was the "King of Rock and Roll."
And prior to him, there was Nat "King" Cole.
Roy Rogers was known as "King of the Cowboys;"
And NASCAR's "King," Richard Petty, could sure make some noise.
King Kong climbed the Empire State,
While a king cobra hides in the grass and waits.
Refer to Benny Goodman as the "King of swing,"
But if you seek tasty meals, go see Burger King.
During the 60's, TV's Sky King flew his plane overhead,
The King Ranch in Texas is a very huge spread'
People whose last name is King are easy to find.
Martin, Don, Rodney, and Alan quickly come to mind.
A childhood game-which many adults play still,
Is to see who'll remain as "King of the Hill."
Some are heroes, some villains; some may not be well known.
But all will end up beneath six feet of ground.
I follow another King who supercedes these.
He is called "Immanuel" and "Prince of Peace."
His earthly existence was only thirty-three years,
Yet He experienced temptation, hurt, and yes....even tears'
Jesus is the One who walked this old sod,
Our Saviour, Redeemer, the Great Son of God.
I have read in the Bible what He has to say,
And I read His promise to return and catch me away'
Future life in Heaven is not all He will give;
For He directs us now in the ways we should live.
That's why we'll worship Him 'til the end.
For He is our dearest, sweetest, most intimate friend.
And daily His mightily praised we sing;
Glory to Jesus- the King of all Kings'
Arthur Ball (H.S.L.P.)
