"KING OF HEARTLAND"

Verse 1
Once a King so good and kind
Took to traveling the land.
He disguised Himself as a servant,
Just to give a helping hand.

Verse 2
He would heal the broken hearted,
He would cure the sick and lame,
He would touch the blind and make them see,
And the downcast lift again.

Verse 3
Once this King so good and kind
Came a-knocking at my door.
He said, “I am here to serve you.”
And then He knelt upon the floor.

Verse 4
Oh, His eyes were full of mercy,
And His love so pure and true.
-Then I noticed scars on His hands and feet,
And He said, “These are for you.”

Bridge 1
Oh-oh-oh, the King made servant.
How could someone love me so?
And I fell before Him and said, “Dear Lord,
It is I that kneel to You.

Chorus 1
"Step right in, Sire,
Take Your place at the throne.
Here’s Your scepter, Sire,
Make my heart Your home.
Every day I’ll come to listen,
For Your Word is my command.
You’re the Master, I’m Your servant;
Be the King of my Heartland."

Bridge 2
[Oh-oh-oh, the King made servant.
How could someone love me so? ]
And I kneel before Him in praise every day,
He has made my heart His home.

Chorus 2
"Step right in, Sire,
Take Your place at the throne.
Here’s Your scepter, Sire,
Make my heart Your home.
Every day I’ll come to listen,
For Your Word is my command.
You’re the Master, I’m Your servant;
Be the King of my Heartland.
Oh-oh-oh, I’m Your servant;
You’re the King of my Heartland.
