King of All

( By Jan Phillips )

He’s not the king of rock n roll
He’s not the king of pop,
He is the King of the universe
Right there at the top.

He’s got a heavenly choir
That sings His songs of love,
They sing His praises
Right there up above.

His songs are not just music
You see them every day,
If you don’t believe me
Just walk out side someday.

Every where you look
There’s beauty and grace,
It’s just like a song
Sung in harmony and space.

The whole world is a song
Just waiting to be sung,
The words are not yet written
For all of us to see.

But when our Lord returns
We can sing all songs,
All the words will be revealed
And harmony will prevail.

If you looked at us through His eyes
What exactly would you see,
That we needed saving once again
From the devil and his sin?

That’s why He’s coming back you know
Because He said He would,
It’s written in His Word
As we would know if we read it like we should.

About Jan P

I was born and raised and still live in the great state of Oklahoma in the U.S.A. I live in Oklahoma City and have lived her for over 40 years. Came from a small town in eastern Oklahoma. I was raised on a farm as my daddy was a sharecropper. I worked for the Department of Defense for over 30 years. I am now retired and trying to catch up on all the things I didn't get to do when I worked. I have written poetry for many years, but only recently started writing more since I have found a place where others can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.

    This is very “catchy” in terms of rhyme and rythm;and I liked the hook at the start,”He’s not the king of rock n roll”,it is very well counterpointed to the actual substance of the poem,though nevertheless throws a useful spotlight on what quite a lot of people tend to overlook,that of the very strong influence on r &r of the gospel singing tradition.Certainly all the artists at Sam Phillips’ Sun Records,Elvis,Jerry Lee,Johnny Cash, all came from that background.And if you add into that mix Motown ,and great singers like Aretha Franklin at Atalantic and the Staples Singers at Stax,that is an impressive roll call of the artists who acted on their particular “calling”.
